Say Hello to Sunshine is the second studio album by American rock band Finch, released on June 7, 2005. This album signaled a sharp departure from the band's last release, What It Is to Burn. Say Hello to Sunshine introduced a harder, gritty sound, with less screaming and a more of an alternative rock sound compared to earlier recordings.[2] The album received mixed reactions. Some were disappointed, having been expecting a similar sound to their previous, whereas others embraced the change in direction. The album was produced with Jason Cupp (The Kite-Eating Tree, The Valley Arena), who also produced the band's self-titled EP.

In 2006, Finch announced an indefinite hiatus[3] - this resulted in Say Hello being regarded as the last release by the band. However, in late 2007, the band officially ended their hiatus and have since released a new EP in July 2008. They then split up again in 2010, in the midst of creating their third album. In 2014, Finch once again rescinded their hiatus and announced a third full length to be released later in the year.
