Long Beach, CA hard rockers, Sunflower Dead, recently announced their tour with headliners Powerman 5000 and (Hed) PE. The tour visits 27 U.S. cities throughout the month of August, coming to a close in Grand Rapids, MI on August 30th. The tour also features a stop at DirtFest in Birch Run, MI on August 9th. Speaking about Roland accordions and parking in New Jersey, Michael Del Pizzo, Sunflower Dead’s front man, hit us from BB Kings’ in New York, NY.

When a band like Moonspell plays it brings an eclectic mix of metal heads to a show. Not your traditional young moshers or crowd surfers were present as the Portuguese metal heads took center stage at the Gramercy Theater in NY. Opening for them were Atrocity and the Norway symphonic metal band Leaves’ Eyes (essentially Atrocity with lead singer Liv Kristine who’s been with the band since 2003). Liv Kristine’s ethereal vocals sounded amazing along side the crushing sound of heavy double base drums. Leaves’ Eyes were out in support of their 2013 release Symphonies of the Night.

The crowd was pumped at the soon-to-be torn down Roseland Ballroom for a night of both new and classic metal. Huntress lead the way with the sexy Jill Janus in a tight 20 min set warming up the crowd for the legendary Testament. The band was tight, but it was MA-based Killswitch Engage who seemed to rule the night with tons of crowd surfing and crisp vocals by frontman Jesse Leach.
