The next two months can’t come any sooner. It’s almost time to bring out the sunscreen and shades, kick back, and headbang to some dubstep at your next music festival. For Modestep, their summer anxiousness can’t be contained, so they made it into a song.
Modestep just released their newest track on Monstercat. The song, “Summer“, came out of nowhere, it seems like. Not complaining, it’s just surprising. My guess is that they released this track early to build some summer hype for their festival circuit. They’re headlining shows all across the world this summer so this might be the kickstart to something, whether it’s an EP, or festival announcement, or album.
Let us know what you think about this song, and what this might mean for Modestep this year.

London-based crossover electronic/dubstep act Modestep formed in 2010, featuring brothers Josh (production, vocals, keyboards) and Tony Friend (production, turntables, guitar), Matthew Curtis (drums, percussion), and Nick Tsang (guitar). The quartet debuted in February 2011 with “Feel Good,” a bursting single that reached the Top Ten of the U.K. dance chart and crossed into the Top 40 of the main pop chart. August’s “Sunlight,” released on Polydor, was more aggressive — to a piercing extent — and fared even better; it peaked in the Top 20 of the pop chart as the group was plotting the release of its debut full-length. After some delays, that album, Evolution Theory, arrived in February 2013. After some touring, Curtis and Tsang departed and were replaced by Kyle Deek and Pat Lundy. The new lineup recorded London Road in a quick and productive fashion — with appearances from the likes of the Partysquad, Big Narstie, and Flowdan — and released it in May 2015. Since then they have been releasing solo singles and a collaborative single with Dion Timmer.
