Rocks Like: The Dangerous Summer, Valencia, Hit The Lights
Check Out: "The Way That You Left Me" single
Dear You formed in 2009 because â€śwe decided we had enough of trying to emulate our favorite bands,â€ť says vocalist Chris Roach. â€śWe wanted to do something we felt had [the attention of] our whole heart.â€ť Working with Kevin Gates (Never Shout Never, the Ready Set) gave the Beaumont, Texas, pop-rock quartet the professional sound and guidance they were looking for; a guest spot by Dangerous Summer vocalist AJ Perdomo on their most recent single, â€śThe Way That You Left Me,â€ť also didnâ€™t hurt. â€ś2012 is going to be a year we make strides,â€ť Roach says.
