After announcing this weekend that frontman AJ Perdomo has left the band, The Dangerous Summer have officially revealed that the band had broken up.
Once the announcement had been made by Perdomo explaining his decision to leave the band, Property of Zack managed to get an interview with guitarist Cody Payne asking whether the band would soldier on without Perdomo. At the time, Payne had said that they were waiting to see what would happen and that things have not been exactly perfect within the band.
Perdomo, in his letter to fans, had said that Payne was the one in charge of everything from the band itself to the bank accounts and funding. Payne rebutted the claim by saying that all members of the band were heard when it came to situations and all the members also had access to the band’s bank account.
Today, the remaining members of the band addressed the situation by releasing a statement that confirmed what fans had been assuming to be the most likely scenario for the remaining members.
Read the full statement below:
To keep you all informed (accurately and unbiased) we are here to let you all know what the real deal is with TDS. Yes we are no longer a band. We would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for letting us travel the world, create albums, and meet some of the coolest people and musicians on the planet.
Thank you for over 50,000 record sales and over 200,000 single sales and a fan base that blew our minds everytime we went on tour.
Sadly the day has come where AJ has decided to take up being a father and focusing on that aspect for his life.
As for future music Matt is planning to release a solo album and Cody has been forming a new band are both planning on releasing new albums sooner than later.
We have been selling our farewell “Albums” tshirt (which are almost sold out)http://dangeroussummer.bigcartel.com and next week will launch our ” THANK YOU FOR 8 YEARS” Photo / Memory book. Proceeds will go towards any remaining bills TDS may have and then split amongst the members and used to help record new music.
Thank you all and please continue to listen and spread the love of The Dangerous Summer.
Matt, Cody, Ben”
