American Pleasure Club - "A Whole Fucking Lifetime of This" out now / US Tour

American Pleasure Club A Whole Fucking Lifetime of This is out now. Being heralded as Sam Ray's best work of his extremely prolific career, A Whole Fucking Lifetime of This touches on almost all aspects of his prior work under different names, but never before has it been as concise and impactful as it is here. You can stream and purchase the album on Bandcamp for $5, or order a physical vinyl, cassette, or CD copy from our webstore.

This is Sam Ray's best album as Teen Suicide or Julia Brown or Ricky Eat Acid or anything else, and it's the best album of the young year so far by some distance... It's further evidence that Ray has a rare gift—present in his ambient work too—for making life's ugly moments beautiful and its beautiful moments limitless. - Noisey
"A Whole Fucking Lifetime Of This" is one of the absolute best albums of this young year so far, one you should hear as soon as possible. - Stereogum

American Pleasure Club (fka Teen Suicide) release "Let's Move to the Desert' video ahead of new album "A Whole Fucking Lifetime of This"

Following the soft release of a new mix tape and a handful of tracks over the holidays, American Pleasure Club (fka Teen Suicide) is sharing a new track "Let's Move to the Desert" complete with a Sam Ray-directed video today. They're also excited to announce their new record, A Whole Fucking Lifetime of This, out February 16, 2018 on Run For Cover Records.

Songwriter Sam Ray said of the new track, "'Let's Move to the Desert' was the first song written or even dreamt up for this album. I was in London, around Thanksgiving in 2016 with my wife & during one of our strange, jet-lagged long nights there I stayed up until God-knows-what hour putting together the instrumental, just playing with the samples & drums that would go on to define the track. I had ideas in mind as well, for the lyrics, but those didn't come together fully until we were back in America, staying at a strange casino & resort outside Phoenix, staying up late again to gamble, drink, and hang out in the vast, cold desert wasteland whenever possible. I love the desert, and the song has no hidden meaning or subtext, it's a pure & serene love song as much about finding the right person to marry & stand by for your lifetime as it is the beauty & absolute terror of the wide, wide open spaces of the American south & southwest. I wanted to write a song as pure & simple as the best Townes Van Zandt tracks, where narrative & character fell completely to the wayside and the haunting empty spaces you become intimately engaged with as a traveler, drifter, touring musician, etc. take the complete center focus. There is something pure and something haunted about this track, the same as there is about the desert, as there is about love, as there is about any of this, and thats what drew me to it and refused to let go of me even after i'd finished the song.

The video has nothing to do with that, of course. It does, however, have a meaning, a subtext, and a purpose completely alien to the song & it's theme(s). I won't say more. But I would like to thank my friends Dan, Dan, Martin, Dexter, Nick & Sean for their help with it, as well as my amazing wife & my wonderful mother Josephine as well. Without any of them it wouldn't be possible to have made it, or have made this record at all. Thanks."
