Pearl Teams With Digital Summer Drummer

By Andy Doerschuk Published March 22, 2010

Those vigilant artist representatives at Pearl just snatched the endorsement of Ben Anderson, drummer for the Phoenix, Arizona band Digital Summer, who scored a White Marine Pearl Reference Series kit in exchange. For those who don’t know, the band has built its fan base completely organically while opening for big names like Alice In Chains, Godsmack, and Deftones and selling more than 100,000 copies of its debut album, Cause And Effect, without benefit of a major label — all while holding down jobs as firefighters, paramedics, and teachers. Digital Summer is presently touring with Drowning Pool and Sevendust.
