Your early 20s are meant to represent the good times. That is the part of your life where you break out of your shell and define yourself as an individual. Those are the moments where you are supposed to feel the most invincible. Where most people their age are studying for finals or living carefree, Tickle Me Pink is dealing with the reality of how short life can be.

With their debut album Madeline, the Fort Collins, Colorado band explores mortality, drug use, suicide, loss, brutal breakups and the trappings of suburbia. The band had to face the subject of death on what should have been one of the best moments of their career, the national release of their first album. On July 1, 2008, the day their album was released, bassist/guitarist Johnny Schou tragically passed away at the age of 22 years-old.

Singer Sean Kennedy explains, “It is somewhat ironic that many of our songs deal with death and a higher purpose. We don’t think it is a coincidence that these songs came about on our record. We want to let the world know how short life is; embrace the ones you love and treasure each moment without regret.”

Formed in 2005, Tickle Me Pink includes Sean Kennedy (lead vocals, bass), Stefan Runstrom (drums), Steven Beck (guitar, vocals) and Joey Barba (guitar). Tickle Me Pink has built a loyal following by playing hundreds of live shows and independently releasing two EPs, If Only We Were Twenty One And Up (2005) and Half Seas Over (2006), and their debut full-length, Madeline.
