My Cruel Summer is an Americana rock band from New Jersey. Founding members are Marc Del Giudice (Lead singer, Guitar), Brian Morelli (Drums), and Dave Ricco (Bass Guitar). We formed in August of 2017 and released our self-titled debut album that same month. Produced by Pete Steinkopf, it captures the band in its rawest form.
We recently put out a brand new EP, titled Lower Voices, on May 23rd, 2018 (also, produced by Pete Steinkopf). It's been a busy year for us, putting out original content and playing shows to support it. We quickly made our way down to Asbury Park playing at such venues like The Asbury Hotel and The Asbury Park Yacht Club.
What's next is a string of shows in the New Brunswick and Asbury area of New Jersey to support our latest release. We hope our music reaches as much people as possible. That should be the only goal for any artist. Especially a new band like us. And that's our advice for any band. Never stop trying to push forward as an artist.
