The Dangerous Summer is a alternative rock / emo / pop punk band from Ellicott City, Maryland. The band formed in the summer of 2006 to write their first EP, There Is No Such Thing As Science, which drew the attention of Hopeless Records and other labels in 2007. They signed with Hopeless Records within 8 months (in April 2007) of starting the band during their senior year of high school. They then re-released their debut EP under a new name, If You Could Only Keep Me Alive, with new songs included. Over the years the band has sold over 60,000 records and over 300,000 singles.
