++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Lonely Ones, Formerly known as Bobaflex, Formed in the summer of 2019, They are a four piece vocal-oriented hard rock band with an ear for melody and a taste for success. No strangers to the hardships of the music industry, The Lonely Ones know what they want and know how to get it.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++
After 9 years, 3 albums, constant touring and steady upward success at Rock Radio, Sunflower Dead is gearing up to release their 4th and most ambitiously dialed in album to date “March Of The Leper”. During the long uneasy months of the Covid inflicted 2020, the main men of SFD, Michael and Jaboo, took a long hard look at themselves, what they have accomplished and where they stood in the grand scheme and realized that not only are they outcasts in the rock world but that they’re happy to accept that role as their own. The result is 9 new tracks that come from a place of “Fuck It, If You Don’t Care then We Don’t Care and We’ll Just Do What We Do” for the Unwanted, the Uninvited, the Leftout, the Forgotten, the Outcasts and the Damned.
