To stand out among the post-pop-punk excesses of the Chicago music scene, Craig Miller was told "You need a great story." The story behind Danger Is My Middle Name is that there is no story. There is no meet-cute, no luck and no fairy tale. Their story is the story of countless bands -- they met, they wrote, they played -- and it worked. But unlike other bands, it continues to work. The lack of flash suits Miller (bass), Gabe Atkins (vocals, guitar) and William Cox (guitar) and their hardworking, no b.s. attitude.

Giving fans from the Midwest markets of Minneapolis, Iowa City, Milwaukee, Grand Rapids, Dayton, St. Louis, and Northwest Indiana what they want -- strong, classic pop-punk hooks and quirky, original riffs has paid off for DIMMN with independent success to the tune of 60K+ digital downloads, spots at Warped Tour, SXSW, Milwaukee Summerfest, Florida Music Festival and tours across the U.S.

Danger's "Revenge On The Radio" EP, (released September 2007) hit Chicago like a hurricane and rapidly destroyed college radio playlists and major market stations like Q101 Chicago, KRQ Tucson and 107.7 Seattle with its popular title track. Alternative Press Magazine, PureVolume.com and iSound.com reviewed and featured the EP. In 2009, DIMMN recorded their anticpated follow-up EP with producer Marc McClusky (Farewell, Hit The Lights, Ludo). Released in July 2009, "Sink Or Swim" featured seven songs and received positive press from AbsolutePunk.net, FriendsOrEnemies, iSound.com, and Buzznet.com. A featured CD on PureVolume.com, it was downloaded over 5,000 times during a free, week-long pre-release. As of March, 2010, "Sink Or Swim" still had a place in the Top 100 Unsigned Band releases on SmartPunk.com.

    What happened to the rest of your music?? There's only 4 songs now, and there used to be like 28! I love your guys' music, and if you were based out of PA, I would so find you and buy a cd, cause I don't have iTunes or a Paypal. Anyway, either come to York or please put the songs back up!! I need my DIMMN fix! Mar 19

    Haha, I like how someone puts up an ominous warning about playing music from 5-10 years ago. (he kinda looks like he's stuck in the past doesn't he?) Keep doing what you're doing DIMMN :) Mar 11

    Pwn that 12-15 yr old demographic. They're the only ones that listen to this style of music. Your days are numbered. Switch it up, or die playing the music of bands fro 5-10 years ago. Feb 17
