American hard rock band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 2001. An early version of the group recorded some demos at Jacksonville Beach studio Music Factory with just Damien Starkey on lead vocal and guitar and Bobby Amaru on drums. The group then moved to Jacksonville's Hole of the Pigeon, where they recorded an impressive set of demos that snagged them immediate major-label interest. The first record executive who showed interest in Burn Season was Flawless Records' Fred Durst, lead vocalist of Limp Bizkit. This led to a strong "buzz" in the industry. The members decided to sign with Elektra Records in what was reputedly an obscenely large deal.
