Sunflower Dead hail from the Southern California Metal/Hard Rock scene and are no strangers to having their brand of music draw attention. The band is a rebirth of sorts. Three-fifths of the band rise from the ashes of former nationally recognized touring acts DROID and Two Hit Creeper. They are rounded out by additional band members who have toured internationally with Buckethead, In This Moment and Memento. Their former bands have earned national recognition by touring alongside Korn, Linkin Park, HELLYEAH, Five Finger Death Punch, The Family Values Tour & the Vans Warped Tour. Sunflower Dead are no strangers to the commitment needed or drive required to win over fans with their own brand of hard rock.

The singer had quite a lot to say; "i felt like on the tour itself, their meet and greets (for which people literally queued HOURS) took away from what the festival was about - music, the bands creating it, and the fans of that music."
