Sunshine is a Czech indie rock band founded in 1994 in Tabor. Soon after establishing the band its members moved to USA where they were recording albums and giving concerts with American band At The Drive-In among the others.
At the beginning they created heavy hardrock music but in the course of time they started to mix rock with alternative music and experiment with electronics.
They have already performed in Chech Republic, USA, England, France, Germany or Russia. In 2003 and 2007 they reached Japan, where three of their albums were licensed.
They became famous abroad thanks to their emotional and spontaneous performances.
