Burnt by the Sun was a band from New Jersey, USA. Formed in November 1999 by ex-Human Remains drummer Dave Witte and guitarist John Adubato. ex-For the Love of… Vocalist Mike Olender and bassist Ted Patterson joined soon after. After a split EP with The Luddite Clone on Ferret Records they were signed on Relapse Records. Impressed by the band's inventive, often humorous take on the metalcore genre, Relapse released a self titled EP. Their full-length debut, Soundtrack to the Personal Revolution (featuring second guitarist Chris Rascio), was released on January 22, 2002, followed by The Perfect Is The Enemy Of The Good which was released on October 7, 2003. Witte and Olender opted to part ways with the group in 2004, leading to a lengthy search for suitable replacements. But, in 2006, both returned to a revamped group (now featuring Nick Hale, formerly of Premonitions of War, on 2nd guitar) On August 25, 2009 Burnt By The Sun released Heart of Darkness. The band stated that Heart of Darkness is their final album.
