The release comes just a few weeks after Bryan released his acclaimed American Heartbreak LP. Bryan, a veteran of the Navy, also has a swath of tour dates, ranging from July into November, which you can also check out below. Fans can purchase tickets for those shows HERE.

“Over the course of Summertime Blues, Bryan sings about working class lifestyle; (the dark and muscular “Quittin’ Time”); paints a bittersweet portrait of a summer night across America on the title track; tells a longing story about the one that got away (“Oklahoma Smoke Show”), and dives deep into the frustrations of a relationship gone sour (the fiery “All The Time”), a press release shares about the new EP. “He shifts from epic to intimate with the songwriting mastery fans have become accustomed to, exploring the many textures of life without flinching at their complexities.”
