The track appears on the new album but can be streamed now at this location. The band plans to release another track and video before the album release, so stay tuned for more exclusive media coming in just a few weeks.
As previously announced, the band is throwing an invite-only CD release party at Harvelle’s in Long Beach, CA on August 17, 2012.

SUNFLOWER DEAD consists of Jaime Teissere (guitar, formerly of Droid), Michael Del Pizzo (vocals, piano, accordion), Jaboo (guitar, formerly of Two Hit Creeper), Luis Gascon (bass touring member of Buckethead), and Jimmy Schultz (drums, touring drummer of In This Moment). The band formed with a goal of creating an undeniable unit that would not just move but more importantly, entertain people.
After forming, the group went into Temple Studios (owned by Raymond Herrera of Fear Factory and B Real of Cyrpress Hill) with Christian Olde Wolbers (Fear Factory) to produce their 11- track self-titled debut record, set to release on August 21, 2012 with Bloody Bat Records LLC. Co-produced and mixed by Jeremy Blair (Guns N’ Roses, DevilDriver) at Temple and House of Blues Studios, and mastered by Robert Hadley (Korn) at The Mastering Lab, the album has a tight, punchy sound with crushing low end and ultra wide sonics.
