Emo rock trio The Dangerous Summer has added a Fargo stop on their 10 Years Under The Sun tour with special guests Arms Akimbo at The Aquarium on Monday, October 21, 2019.
The band hails from Elliot City, Md. Since 2006 they have toured over 800 shows in North America, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Europe, including slots on the Warped Tour. The band’s sixth album Mother Nature landed in June 2019.
The Dangerous Summer emerged straight out of high school in the late 2000s playing a passionate, anthemic brand of rock. They gained widespread attention with their 2009 debut, Reach for the Sun, and Warped Tour appearances before breaking up in 2014. Following a four-year hiatus, they reunited for 2018’s The Dangerous Summer.
This fall they’re hitting the road with their ‘10 Years Under The Sun’ tour to celebrate a decade since the release of their first album. On the tour, they’ll be performing Reach For The Sun in its entirety, and then ending their set with select songs from their latest album Mother Nature. The tour will run across the US and Canada before jumping to Australia at the end of the year.
Joining Dangerous Summer in Fargo will be indie rockers Arms Akimbo. The four-piece rock outfit is comprised of Peter Schrupp, Christopher Kalil, Matthew Sutton and Colin Boppell. Billboard Magazine described their single, ‘Devil’ as “Infectious Party-Inspired Single.”
After meeting in college, they formed a band inspired by artists like Portugal. The Man, Local Natives, and Hippo Campus. They self-produced their EP, “Vignettes” and found immediate success, soon opening for WALK THE MOON, Said The Whale and Colleen Green and selling out venues such as The Troubadour, The Roxy, and The Bootleg Theatre.
Last year Arms Akimbo released an EP, entitled The Wrong Kind Of Dance Party as well as a couple of singles – ‘Devil’ and ‘Virtual’.
