If you’re headed to Warped Tour this summer, odds are you’ll hear The Summer Set’s name thrown around quite a bit. Since forming in 2007, the Scottsdale band has risen to become one of the more popular acts in the pop-rock genre, even earning some much-desired crossover success by performing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.

Just before the band headed out for Warped, I caught up with frontman Brian Dales to chat about the evolution of The Summer Set’s sound, how re-runs of How I Met Your Mother provided a jumping-off point for the group’s new album, Legendary, and why he’s forever indebted to Bruce Springsteen. If you like what you hear, be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or Stitcher so you don’t miss a single episode of the stories behind your favorite songs. Thanks for listening!
