The Sunstreak is a band from Rochester, New York.


First known as One Year Nothing, they released an album on B and W records.[1] They played on the Vans Warped Tour in 2002 (before they knew how to play, according to vocalist Tony Rebis), and again in 2006—filling the "Bar-Ba_Q" slot, meaning they played and then cooked for the other bands.[2] Their first album sold 25,000 records in a month, becoming the second band in history to chart on Billboard not having a distribution deal.[1][3]

The band was named The Sunstreak when they released their major label debut, Once Upon A Lie,[4] on Merovingian, a sublabel owned by EMI.[2]
