Digital Summer will also be announcing a few additional one-off dates, both festival and headline shows. So far “Welcome to Rockville” in Jacksonville, FL on April 26th, 2014 is among one of the festivals Digital Summer has already confirmed. Following the tour announcement, the band recently signed on 13 year old YouTube drummer Austin Rios of Elk City, OK and guitar player Derek Kleoppel of Kansas City, MO. Kyle states “Austin is no gimmick, this kid is the real deal. He shocked us and he’s going to shock a lot of people very soon”. Digital Summer is known for their unconventional style of business and marketing, this member line-up proves to be right along those lines.

In other news, the band has recently stated they’ve been in the studio working on new material and possibly a Deluxe Edition release of their current studio album Breaking Point, which features their chart breaking radio hit “Forget You”. No release dates have been announced.
