Only Regret The Summer is a post-hardcore band from The San Fernando Valley taking the L.A. music scene by storm and have no intentions of stopping any time in the near future.  Only Regret The Summer, or ORTS as fans call them, is composed of six teenage guys who dream of nothing else but to become stars.

For those who know of this band, odds are you know about them through one or two of the members.  Luckily for me, I have a personal connection with all six and I consider myself lucky to be as close as I am with these guys.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Only Regret The Summer you best introduce yourselves quickly to any of the six members:

Fabi Behnam – Lead Vocals
John Lee – Sceams
Adam Gendler – Guitar/Vocals
Garrett Winn – Guitar
Ryan Krouse – Bass
Stuart Wong – Drums

If you have ever been to an Only Regret The Summer show then you already know what the feeling is likeFrom the moment they appear on stage you are engulfed within their music.  I’ve had people come up to myself who don’t even like “screamo” music and tell me that they had the time of their lives.  Although the music may be tough, Fabi’s soft, yet powerful vocas soothes and comforts whomever is in the audience.  One of the many things I enjoy within the depths of what is known as Only Regret The Summer is their unwavering ability to surprise you.  I don’t just mean with promo videos or clips of new songs….No, I am talking about the way they comfort you with their music, and just as you begin to let your guard down they scare the crap out of you with a breakdown >:D  I am unsure of whether or not they do this on purpose, but it surely keeps me wanting more.

ORTS has recently put out a new single to get their fans buzzing again.  “The First Time (Since The Last Time)” is the name.  Any listener soon discovers the imminent influence of A Day To Remember within the song.  Using popular easycore techniques such as the group vocal chant and lead in to the breakdown, Only Regret The Summer masters their genre (whatever that may be).

All in all, I would definitely recommend Only Regret The Summer to anyone who enjoys music.  They are going places and I hope that one day I can hear someone mention their name and be able to say, “We played our first show together!”
