Silversun Pickups Announce New Album, Share Tour Dates

Silversun Pickups, on the heels of announcing their long-awaited return with new album Widow’s Weeds (June 7th, New Machine Recordings), confirm new tour dates in June and July. The band will perform in cities including Santa Barbara, Dana Point, CA (at KROQ’s Weenie Roast), Buffalo, Burlington and Portland, ME (full dates below). Tickets for all dates will go on sale Friday, May 3 at 10 am local time, with the exception of Burlington’s Higher Ground show which will go on sale that day at 11 am local time. Silversun Pickups have previously confirmed performances at X107.5’s OBC show in Las Vegas on June 6th and at Del Mar’s KAABOO festival in September.

Widow’s Weeds, Silversun Pickups’ 5th studio album will be released on June 7th via their own New Machine Recordings label. The band enlisted Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth) to produce their latest, an extroverted and open album about rebirth and renewal. Said lead singer Brian Aubert about Widow’s Weeds: “This was the first album where we were open. We were exposed. I see how that can be scary to people, but for us we really thrived on that.” Widow’s Weeds is now available to pre-order here, with lead single, “It Doesn’t Matter Why,” provided as an instant download. The band also shared the music video for the single which was directed by Suzie Vlcek.
