The Summer Set is a pop rock/powerpop band from Scottsdale, Arizona that formed in 2007. TSS is signed on the Militia Group and released their first EP on September 30th, 2008 titled “…In Color”.

In December of 2008 The Summer Set realeased their EP “Meet Me On The Left Coast” which inculded their Christmas single, “Love By Our Side”, a b-side titled “Can You Find Me” and an Usher cover, “Love In This Club” as a bonus track.

The Summer Set announced in April 2009 that they were heading into the studio to record their debut album, “Love Like This” which was released on October 13th, 2009.

On July 6th,2011, they re-released “Love Like This” and included a second disk that was composed of Taylor Swift covers and titled it “Love Like Swift”. It is sold exclusively at Wal-Mart and Walmart.com.

After Love Like This, the group went on tour…and never really stopped, playing 300 shows a year with a slot on The Glamour Kills stage for the 2010 Vans Warped Tour.

The band released their second full length, “Everything’s Fine” on July 19, 2011. For the album, the group spent some time songwriting with Paul Doucette of Matchbox 20 and Mike Daly of Whiskeytown in Nashville, and recording with veteran producer John Fields.

Besides finishing a new record, the band has been busy recently opening for All Time Low and Yellowcard, as well as experiencing their music in a whole new context: blanketed all over television, from VH1 to “Jersey Shore” to, most notably, “Dancing with the Stars.”
