Based in Ramona, Eyes Like the Sun was a popular rock band harkening back to the sounds of the 1980s. After splitting, several members re-formed as post-hardcore band Thousand Below and signed to Rise Records, releasing their debut album, The Love You Let Too Close, in October 2017.
Fronted by singer James Deberg, the release of their second album Gone In Your Wake in Autumn 2019 was preceded by a single for "Chemical" and a video for a new track, "Disassociate," followed by a tour with Of Mice & Men.
In summer 2020, a video debuted for their Gone In Your Wake song "171 xo," featuring the band performing indoors and on a rooftop. Their acoustic remix EP Let Go Of Your Love, featuring four reworked tracks from last year's Gone In Your Wake and one new song (the title track), dropped in August 2020 via Rise Records. Sumner Peterson of Dead Lakes appears on the new version of "Chemical."
