Album Notes
"Cups (20,000 Sunsets)" is Almshouse's second single release since their 2016 full-length album Bitter Thing. Following 2018's Gaslight, the band continues to explore dark themes, focusing this time on the fleeting nature of life itself. The accompanying video blends vintage home movie footage with clips of the band enjoying the time-tested pleasures of a good drink, a card game, and each other's company. The song was written by the band's lead singer, Irene Lambrou, and her husband Troy Schoenmeier, who also played guitars on the track. Ken Belli played bass, Tony Winkler played guitars, James Farrell played drums and also designed the artwork for the single. All of the gentlemen contributed backing vocals. Bud Burroughs played mellotron and mandolin. Matt Muir, who added some percussion, recorded and mixed Cups at Kawari Sound in Wyncote PA, and the song was mastered by Jim Salamone at Cambridge Sound Studios in Philadelphia PA. Matt Salamone shot and edited the video.

Line your glasses up boys
Time to break the seal and pour your heart out
It’s a pretty bottle from an ancient barrel
Amber fire

Everything changes, no one is safe
Fill up your cups and let’s toast to a good run

We’ve been mostly lucky
But the world got ugly
Cry your heart out

Everything changes, no one is safe
Fill up your cups and let’s toast to a good run
20,000 sunsets
Less than half the color left
20,000 sunsets
