Jamie Teissere, guitarist of defunct metal band Droid, has announced the launch of his new act SUNFLOWER DEAD. After multiple US tours with groups 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 & 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 band dubbed themselves SUNFLOWER DEAD and went into Temple Studios (owned by Raymond Herrera, Fear Factory & B Real, Cyrpress Hill) with Christian Olde Wolbers (Fear Factory) to produce their recently completed 11 song debut record. This record is an intense and in your face, emotionally charged roller coaster of dark, aggressive, and spell bindingly dynamic heaviness with no shortage of anthemic sing along vocals.
