Summertime Dropouts / Bio

On their debut album entitled “Rewind”, Minneapolis‐based Pop Rock band Summertime Dropouts has crafted an indelible collection of songs which transport the listener on a trip down memory lane to a time when life was much simpler and carefree, far removed from the burdens of a complex world.

Since "Rewind,” Summertime has pursued many interesting projects. Apart from their dedication to producing quality music, the band members are also committed to interacting with their fans. After a discussion on Twitter about potatoes with their followers, Summertime has released their very own e-book titled "100 Things to do with a Potato.” Summertime was also proud to be interviewed by Bryan Stars in a hilarious discussion and several unforgettable
moments. In addition, the band has produced several exciting and educational YouTube videos; the most (in)famous being a workout video titled "Move It Around." 

Summertime Dropouts has released two official music videos for their songs “Full Time Cutie” and “1999” which have had a variety of adds including MTV Latin American, Universal Studios, MTV.com, VH1.com, and a variety of other retail pool placements. The band is excited to announce that they are currently working on their highly-anticipated second studio album which is scheduled for release December 2014.

From a musical perspective, the band draws inspiration from bands like All‐American Rejects, Boys Like Girls, Blink‐182 and Sum 41 to create a musical masterpiece brimming with pure pop punk magic.

Executive Producer Clint Gibbs, who has been involved with a string of commercially successful songs from big‐name artists, states, “their skill and dedication to the music is on par with the ’A’ crop of major label acts. After hearing the Summertime demos I knew they had a great record ahead of them.”
