Sunflower Dead Premiere “Turn Away” Music Video

Sunflower Dead have premiered a new video for their song “Turn Away.” This track is from their latest album “C O M A.“

Michael Del Pizzo commented:

“Isn’t it funny how a song with an overtly anti-suicide theme is one that we attempted to self sabotage multiple times but couldn’t finish the job? ‘Turn Away‘ was coming to fruition, no matter how many times we tried to toss it aside. It just seemed to have a life of its own and is now what we consider to be the most important track of our career.

This song might have been the last song written on the last possible day and the last song added to the final track list on the last possible day but no matter how many times we stood in its way, ‘Turn Away‘ was coming to life. This is only fitting as the song stands for those suffering with feeling like they have given all they can and have nothing left but to give up when all they really need to do is find solace in letting things be.”

Sunflower Dead Premiere “Victim” Music Video

Sunflower Dead have premiered a new video for their new song “Victim.” This track is from the band’s new album, “C O M A,“ which will be released on October 19. This news comes after Christian Olde Wolbers (Powerflo/ex-Fear Factory) and Brian “Brett” Weir (ex-Starset) recently joined the group and after they decided to drop their theatrical appearance. Vocalist Michael Del Pizzo said the following about “Victim”:

“‘Victim‘, the song itself, is an extension of the pummeling out of my frustration and finally letting go of unwanted people, situations and feelings that I can no longer keep and still retain a positive outlook on life. As far as the video, I told Matt I wanted something raw, dirty and ferocious, kinda like Pantera’s ‘I’m Broken‘ video, to get the song’s meaning across and show SFD in a no bullshit manner. He delivered, and gave us a phenomenal look to reintroduce Sunflower Dead to the world.”drums.”

Sunflower Dead Joined By Former Fear Factory & Starset Members, Announce New Album

Sunflower Dead have signed a new deal with David Ellefson‘s (Megadeth) EMP Label Group and are planning to release their new album “C O M A” on October 19. With this news, the group have also announced the addition of Christian Olde Wolbers of (Powerflo/ex-Fear Factory) and Brian “Brett’ Weir“ (ex-Starset) to their lineup. Furthermore, the band will no longer be wearing makeup as they have done in the past.

Vocalist Michael Del Pizzo commented:

“Though we are extremely proud of what we have accomplished on our own with the more theatrical version of the band, SFD has grown considerably. The entire process of writing and recording this album was fueled by a sense of aggression unlike anything in our previous output. It was clear to everyone involved that this was the moment to strip off the makeup, sign with a label and let the music speak for itself. So we did. And when it came down to it, EMP was definitely the right place.”

“We have known Thom [Hazaert] forever. He actually helped launch SFD’s first album and got us our first national tour back in 2012. Combine that with having David Ellefson on our side, and this was an easy decision.”

Guitarist Jaboo added:

“The music on C O M A is more focused, vicious and emotionally dialed in than any of our previous work. This record is like the rebirth of the band similar to what Christopher Nolan did with the Batman saga. That rebirth is that much stronger with the addition of Christian Olde Wolbers (Fear Factory, Poweflo) on bass and Brian “Brett” Weir (Downplay, Starset) on drums.”
