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.

SUNFLOWER DEAD – Featuring Ex Members of DROID and Touring Members of BUCKETHEAD, IN THIS MOMENT and More

Jamie Teissere, guitarist of defunct metal band Droid, has announced the launch of his new project, SUNFLOWER DEAD. After multiple U.S. tours with bands such as Korn, Evanescence, Five Finger Death Punch and Hell Yeah supporting Droid’s debut on Munky from Korn’s Emotional Syphon Recordings, the guitarist was by no means ready to quit the music game after Droid’s sudden demise.

Wasting no time, he assembled a new outfit consisting of Michael (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 with a goal of creating an undeniable unit that would not just move but more importantly, entertain people.

The group dubbed themselves SUNFLOWER DEAD and 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.

This record is an intense, in your face, emotionally charged roller coaster of dark, aggressive, and spell-bindingly dynamic heaviness with no shortage of anthemic sing along vocals.

“SUNFLOWER DEAD are a refreshing sound with a great vocal range, not like your average current metal/rock band,” commented producer Christian Olde Wolbers. “This is just the debut, but SUNFLOWER DEAD have tremendous potential to break in a bigger market and they have proved it with this strong debut.”

“This album is fucking dope,” added co-producer Jeremy Blair. “This band came in with the record they wanted to make and it was a pleasure to help them accomplish their goal without any outside negative influences. The songs, the playing, and hooks are sick. I believe this record will be huge.”

The band recently released an EPK teaser that can be viewed at this location. The EPK serves as a first look into SUNFLOWER DEAD’s sound, look and story that is described as a cross between Reservoir Dogs, 30 Days of Night, The Crow and The Warriors.

SUNFLOWER DEAD plans to release a new music video for the single ‘Make Me Drown’ in the coming months. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon on the new self-titled album and music video.
