Last week we covered the amazing Born To Ride 2 Tour at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco with (hed) P.E. and SOiL and it was quite a night. Opening up for them was the great new theatrical Metal/Rock band Sunflower Dead. Wow, what a show these guys put on. Sunflower Dead are based out of Long Beach and this was the first time I heard of them. I was glad we made it to the show early enough to catch them because their set was one not to be missed!

Sunflower Dead is:

  • Michael – vocals, piano, accordion
  • Jaboo – lead guitar
  • Jamie Teissiere – guitar
  • Leighton “Lats” Kearns – bass
  • Jimmy Schultz – drums

What I really like about them is their stage presence and they bring the theatrical side to their music as each member is a unique character with face paint and stage outfits. They then come to life with their music as it takes you to a dark aggressive journey with fierce metal and hard rock that will have you in awe. In addition to their own songs, they played a dark cover of Police’s Every Breath You Take which was really a highlight for me. I may have to add that to my next Top 25 Covers because they did a great job. Check it out here:


You can also check out the awesome photos by our Rockin Ryan from their set here or you can see them on his Facebook album :

We can’t wait until Sunflower Dead return to San Francisco. Meanwhile, they have just announced that they have been added to the Powerman5000 and (hed) P.E. tour set for Summer. The tour is set to start in August and dates are still being added so make sure to visit their social media sites to stay up to date.




So hope you catch Sunflower Dead when they come through your town. Make sure to head over to their Merch Page and pick up their CD as well as come cool shirts!
