Acid Dad is an American alternative-rock band composed of singer-guitarists, Vaughn Hunt and Sean Fahey, and drummer, Trevor Mustoe. Vaughn first started recording the band in his Bushwick, NY basement releasing singles “Brain Body” and their first EP “Let’s Plan a Robbery.” Appearing live in the New York City rock scene in 2016, Acid Dad quickly moved to a world stage with their self-titled debut album in 2018.

In 2021, while continuing to independently produce all their own music, art and even building their own guitars, Acid Dad produced their second LP ‘Take It From The Dead’ and spent time building a studio space in Queens, NY. Unfortunately that studio was lost in a catastrophic flood brought in by Hurricane Ida later that year, but thankfully its energy and soul were captured with the bands live film and album ‘Levitation Sessions,’ recorded only a few months prior.

In 2022 the band is set to release their new 7” single ‘Get Me High’, featuring an otherworldly video by Acid Dad visual artist Webb Hunt. The B-Side 'Brain Body' was recorded live at Shaky Knees Festival in April 2022. The band will tour all of October supporting Australia’s Psychedelic Porn Crumpets across the entire USA with festival stops including both Desert Daze and Levitation.

“Since our studio was destroyed by the hurricane Ida floods, our music has been heavily influenced by the nature of water. ‘Get Me High’ is about trying to grasp a breath after unexpectedly losing everything. Inspired by children’s cartoons, pipe systems, and fluid dynamics, we created Ding Ding, creatures who find themselves lost in a foreign psychedelic world.” - Acid Dad

‘Get Me High’ is co-released by Brooklyn’s Greenway Records and psych powerhouse LEVITATION’s label, The Reverberation Appreciation Society.

Acid Dad is Vaughn Hunt (guitars and vocals), Sean Fahey (guitars and vocals) and Trevor Mustoe (drums).
