Cyanide Sunrise is a high-energy hard-rock/metal band from Pottsville, PA. Formed in 2005, Cyanide Sunrise is Andy Strausser (Bass/Vocals), Jason Zaharick (Guitar/Vocals), Eddie Collins (Guitar), Dave Cantwell (Drums), and Jason Dembinsky (Lead Vocals).
Sharing the stage with bands such as The Misfits, Trivium, 12 Stones, and even Coolio, Cyanide Sunrise is a band that fits into the equation no matter with who or where the band performs. Taking pictures, signing autographs, and interacting with fans on a personal basis is our staple. We try to make all our fans feel like they’re a part of the band.
Cyanide Sunrise has performed with over 50 national touring bands and previously toured oursleves with bands such as HURT, Smile Empty Soul, and Ventana. We’ve performed on the main stage at Rockapalooza in Jackson, MI every year since 2011 and in many venues across the Northeast and Midwest.
2013 has already been great to us. Cyanide Sunrise participated in the Sumerian Records Headbang for the Highway – “The Road to the Sphinx” local competition and WON. As a result, we will be performing a date of the All Stars Tour and heading off to the regional competition later this year. If we with the regional competition we advance on to the finals in Hollywood, CA.
We are in the process of recording a new record for a late summer or early fall 2013 release. Cyanide Sunrise will begin touring nationally in support of that record.
