AMERICAN PLEASURE CLUB (fka Teen Suicide)
AMERICAN PLEASURE CLUB (fka Teen Suicide)
American Pleasure Club is a rock band from Baltimore, Maryland led by singer, songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Sam Ray. Accompanied by lifelong friends Sean Mercer, Daniel Windsor, and Nick Hughes, they make genre-defining music that dances effortlessly between scuzzy, full band rock songs, acoustic-led folk, electronic-pop experimentalism, and many other sounds. Ray started the band in 2009 under the name "Teen Suicide", and released his first album in 2011, when it was still a solo project. Each successive release brought with it new sounds, as well as new band-members, and by the time the last album under the name was released in 2016, they were working more as a collective than a proper unit, recording songs any-way they saw fit, with whoever was available and willing to help. Now, years later, with a proper lineup, a new name, and a brand new commitment and purpose, the band returns with the most cohesive & definitive album of their career thus far. By finding ways to meld the disparate influences and styles of their past work, while also breaking new ground with their songwriting & fidelity, they've created something unique and beguiling to old and new fans alike.

Seamlessly blending sounds and influences as diverse as american folk & country traditions, drum n' bass, japanese ambient music, modern rap, classic scuzzy 80s+90s indie rock, and synth-ballads recalling badalamenti & julee cruise's iconic, haunted film scores for david lynch, "A Whole Fucking Lifetime of This" is an album that everyone on earth will love.

"If you combined the coming of age Studio Ghibli film, “Whisper of the Heart,” and meshed it with references to bubble tea, and added some lyrics and guitar instrumentals, it would equate to a High Sunn song." -Mica Kendall (altphilanthropy) High Sunn started as the bedroom solo project of San Francisco's Justin Cheromiah at the age of 14. Since that first release in May 2014, he's released no less than 30 releases, in a prolific mix of singles, EPs and full albums. Now 18 years old, finishing up his senior year of high school, he has released his first ever studio recording- the "Hopeless Romantic" EP and a follow up studio project, "missed connections" soon to be released by PNKSLM records. Along with the move from the bedroom to the studio, Justin brought his friends and live band- Joe (drums), Freddy (lead guitar) and Ari (bass), not to mention producer Dylan Wall (Naomi Punk, Craft Spells etc), all of whom contribute into making the jump from the lo-fi bedroom sound into a fully-fledged dream pop record.
