Digital Summer is an unmistakable modern rock band originating from Phoenix, Arizona. Made up of heavy/melodic guitars and raw emotional vocals, Digital Summer creates an edgy, yet soothing tone for a radio friendly world. Influenced by multiple music genres, Digital Summer is a rock band to the core, not a “trend” by any means. Digital Summer is known for their professional songwriting ability, energetic live show and seemingly endless promotional antics.
Digital Summer has had 6 singles in regular rotational play on major market radio (KUPD, OCTANE, WGRD, WWBN, WIIL, WZBH, WXQR, KHTO, KRDJ, KTUX and more.), “Whatever it takes”, "Disconnect”, “Just Run”, "Hostage", “Forget You” and "Dance In The Fire" have all been among the top requested songs on each station. “Just Run” was #1 in rotation per research on 98Kupd for over seven weeks straight.
"Forget You" reached #38 on Active Rock radio charts.
Aside from sharing the stage with bands like Alice in Chains, Godsmack, Deftones, Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch, Theory of a Dead Man and many more, Digital Summer has also toured nationally with Sevendust, Drowning Pool, 10 Years, Saliva, Taproot, Nonpoint and more. With a live show that includes throwing guitars across the stage and diving into the crowd, the band is quoted often as saying “Fans should get their money’s worth. If you’re not willing to bleed on stage, you shouldn’t be there.”
Digital Summer is not your “typical” rock band by a long shot. Along with being professional musicians, the members manage to maintain additional professional careers. Front man Kyle Winterstein is currently a Firefighter/Paramedic/Technical Rescue Specialist. His brother and guitarist, Ian Winterstein (Sponsored by Schecter) is a Flight Medic on a helicopter. Bassist Anthony “Guido” Hernandez (Sponsored by Spector) is finishing his business degree in marketing..
These additional careers are what drive the lyrical and emotional foundation of what Digital Summer's music is about. From death and tragedy to passion and endurance, the songs on a Digital Summer album come from their real lives and their very own experiences.

Heavy/Melodic rock. Energetic live show.
We spent last week in the studio working on the new album followed by time with family and friends for the holidays. Hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year! Looking forward to what 2017 has to offer!
Recent interview Kyle did with The Carillon in Regina, SK, Canada. Article by Ethan Butterfield.
carillonregina.com "For us a live show is about giving the fans their money’s worth. For us, it's a full-scale cardio workout combined with a complete emotional drain." – Kyle Winterstein
While our priorities in life have rightfully shifted, we continue to create. The writing process for our next album has been halted several times due to personal circumstances far beyond our control, however it IS moving forward and will see the light of day in the foreseeable future. We truly appreciate all the continued support... there will be new music soon! #DSAquarius
We have a new addition to the DS family! Congrats to Kyle and his wife Ashley on the arrival of their beautiful daughter Elliot Iris Winterstein! Baby Ellie and family are home now and doing great :) #family
