Silversun Pickups New Album ‘Neck Of The Woods’ Out May 8th

Silversun Pickups

Silversun Pickups are set to release their new album ‘Neck Of The Woods’ on May 8th via Dangerbird Records. ‘Neck of the Woods’ contains 11 tracks and was produced by Jacknife Lee. Lead singer/guitarist Brian Aubert told Spin magazine that the songs sound “like a horror movie. [2009’s] ‘Swoon’ was more about what I was feeling at that particular time, whereas with this one, I wanted to see what built me. It was learning why I am the way I am.”
