13 Jan Fifteenth Summer
In an era when rock music has suffered a stream of defeats by other musical persuasions, veteran Atlanta outfit FIFTEENTH SUMMER continues to forge a new path with the marriage of savage guitar work, grinding synthetics, harrowing string melodies, thunderous drums, and thought-provoking lyricism with a commitment to high-energy live performance and the victory of quality music over complacent normalcy. Birthed in early 1999 by two kids with dreams of grandeur, FIFTEENTH SUMMER rocketed out of the garage and now shares the stage with high-profile national acts like VAST and Cross Culture. Vocalist and lyrical scribe Chris DiTuri revels in the fact that the band cannot be classified as any single musical archetype. He states the unit is “always in a state of flux, always ahead of the curve, and has a fierce aversion to assimilation.” This is the end of the old world, where the battle to tell an honest story amongst a sea of overly primped, radio-ready clones continues to rage on. No matter where everyone else is going, FIFTEENTH SUMMER continues to push forward on their own path, even if they aren’t sure exactly where it will take them.
