In 2014 Dan Pirello was about a week away from embarking on a solo tour across The United States. He had bought a pick up truck, converted it to run on vegetable oil and booked six shows that would get him from San Francisco to Brooklyn in a little over a week. As the reality of the potential dangers of this kind of solo expedition began to set in Dan called his longtime best friend Tom Tierney and asked him if he had any interest in flying to San Francisco to go on tour. Tom responded by buying a plane ticket and heading west. It was somewhere around the continental divide that the two realized this was more than just much needed vacation for two old friends. After about a thousand miles of deliberation they decided to call the band Suncruiser and never looked back.

They made it to Brooklyn on one tank of diesel and about fifty
cubes of vegetable oil. They played their last show and immediately entered Tom’s recording studio (Spaceman Sound) to start working on the record. They recorded «Trains» the first day which would become the last song on their self titled debut album. Over the course of the next two years Suncruiser was forged as the two tirelessly wrote and recorded the album in the studio. They are now poised to hit the road again, this time in a van as a four piece with a fully realized sound and aesthetic inspired by the freedom of the open road.
