Cemetery Sun is a Northern Californian band, playing since 2003. They blend pop-punk, alt-rock and electro-R&B in their music. Based out of Sacramento and featuring the talents of Josh Doty (vocals), Austen Butler (drums), Elliot Polokoff (guitar/producer) and Jesse Mancillas (lead guitar), the quartet came together in 2003, but instead of hitting the road, they honed their chops in the studio, amassing a huge arsenal of songs. In early 2016 the band's single "Fake Love" caught the attention of Mikey Flom, the son of Lava founder Jason Flom, resulting in a record deal with the Universal Music Group imprint. The band's eponymous debut EP dropped later that year.
