Pleasure Device is a guitar-driven, experimental indie-rock band formed in San Diego in 2008. The group is composed of vocalist and guitarist Chad Robinson (formerly of Wormwood and Dynamite Hack), drummer Jack Panighetti (formerly of Boone Companion and El Buzzard) and pianist Craig Dolce (Hurricane Jenny and Early Autumn). The band’s newest members consist of bassist Will Fears and guitarist Ryan Kimble, both by way of their former band Behind The Wagon.

The Pleasure Device sound infuses the energy of The Cars and Nirvana with the experimentalism of Sonic Youth and David Bowie. Their songs are, as City Beat music reviewer Drew Keltz put it: “…as catchy as an STD”

The band has recorded two studio albums; the first, The Spectacular Miseries of Re-Entry, was released in 2009. The second, ANTHROPOCENE, was released in 2020 and was recorded in Austin, Tx and Del Dios, CA. The band is currently working on new music and will start releasing monthly singles leading up to an LP release in 2024.
