“Why We Long To Stay is the 11th album by The Dangers and an emotional follow-up to last year's Dreamtime. It features stories about trying to hold onto something, whether it be a lost love, a current love or the good times. It also features stories about living each day to the fullest because, "Everyday Is Borrowed Time". I love the fact that the band recorded most of the album together live. I feel that that makes for tighter and more cohesive performances because the stakes are higher recording this way. Everyone must be at their best . . .” - Patrick Judy (click to read more)
“The evolution of The Dangers continues. Why We Long to Stay, an album on the heels of All Rivers Collide, Land of Opportunity and Dreamtime, gives us a clear picture of a band that knows where it has been and where it is heading.” - Gary Thomas (click to read more)
Land Of Opportunity “Hmmm...where do I start? Well....The album starts off with some grit in "The Opportunity." The beautiful duet in “Satisfied” is a great change of pace. The bluesy "Grenade" (and its jam session partner at the end) are awesome throwbacks to the 50's and 60's. "Last Three Songs" is a sweet song . . . . like an early morning cup of coffee on a cold weekend morning . . . Eclectic, maybe...but I love it!” - Matthew V Pollack
“I know how LUCKY I am that every year we get a new record from The Dangers. I can’t say enough how much I love WHY WE LONG TO STAY.
“Too many great songs to pick a favorite, but I absolutely love SAD EMOTION, EVERY DAY IS BORROWED TIME, A GOOD DAY, HERE BEFORE…well okay, I just love the album! It's all good when I can add new Dangers songs to my world. I’m forever thankful Chris LeRoy.”

The Dangers have been making music since the late 1970’s. Formed in Southern California, The Dangers stood out against the bands from the punk era.

Some of the band’s original recordings (and new songs) are on the 2007 release, dedication and The Dangers (blue album) released in 2008 with guitarist, Robert Vennum and Brad Vaughn on drums. Following those albums, the band focused on new material.
LeRoy and Vennum produced Little Bit Of Light, Embrace The Light Outside, Gold!, Sound Of Waves. The BellRays’ Lisa Kekaula sang lead and backing vocals in this era. In 2014 The Dangers added guitarist Mike Geoghegan and bassist Mac McFuzz replacing Vennum and bassist Tim Laughlin. Ralph Torres joined the band adding keyboards and vocals blending with Geoghegan.
The following releases, In Our Room, All Rivers Collide and Land Of Opportunity opened new musical directions for LeRoy and the group. The band added bassist Matt Wycoff in 2017. LeRoy has produced the last six albums, including Dreamtime and their latest, Why We Long To Stay.
