Having built a strong following in their hometown of Glasgow, Scotland, South Of Summer having been developing their brand of Post-Hardcore/Metal for around a year, with the current line-up being together since last summer.
Citing bands such as Alexisonfire and Bring Me The Horizon as influence, South Of Summer mix bold riffs with progressive structures and use the occasional hook. Whilst it is still early days for the Scottish sextet, a recent appearance on the Red Bull Bedroom Jam and a forthcoming tour with Mae's Lost Empire are set to help the band on their way.
For Fans Of: Alexisonfire, Bring Me The Horizon and Asking Alexandria.

ATP: What's the story behind the band?
SOS: Basically starting out as a bunch of friends who have came from different musical backgrounds wanting to bring all these different genre's together to make a unique sound and to play music that we enjoy playing and to entertain every single person who attends our gigs.
ATP: Single highlight as a band so far?
SOS: Our sell out show at the Classic Grand in Glasgow (250 capacity) for our EP show was pretty amazing, seeing our fans sing our lyrics back to us while we played them was unbelievable, that so far stands out as our best moment. Our live performance on Red Bull Bedroom Jam also was a phenomenal moment for us.
ATP: What are your plans for the next 12 months?
SOS: We have more gigs throughout the UK, 2nd EP or maybe an album and a music video are all being planned for 2011/ You will be hearing a lot more of South Of Summer throughout this year.
