FLOWERS ON THE GRAVE is about remembrance and reflecting on the things we’ve laid to rest or outgrown. It’s also a nod to the cycle of existence: life inevitably moves toward death, and death makes way for new life.

“The song “Icarian” is about tearing down the barriers we all have in our minds that keep us from reaching our true potential – this is a song about breaking out and reaching high, portrayed through the lens of the myth of Icarus. The video expands on this theme, with the Icarus character played by a woman on the edge of an ocean. She begins her journey in darkness, gradually building confidence in claiming her sovereignty, until she spreads her wings and begins her flight.” – FLOWERS ON THE GRAVE

For fans of Shinedown, Tool, Halestorm, Daughtry, and Alter Bridge, FLOWERS ON THE GRAVE bring to life a bold and striking sound that will shake your very core.

FLOWERS ON THE GRAVE are Nathaniel Abernathy (lead guitar and supporting vocals), Manuel Tello (bass and supporting vocals), Kenny Flowers (lead vocal and rhythm guitar), and Dan Kesterke (drums/percussion). The song and video were produced by Ryan Hudson of 1887 Media.
