Silversun Pickups Hope To Swoon Fans in April
The L.A. quartet has emerged from the depths of recording studios and is ready to flaunt their new material, including a performance at Coachella Friday, April 17.
"I'm really proud of Swoon," singer/guitarist Brian Aubert says. "I felt that we started this thing with a complete blank slate just kind of staring at a big mountain, not knowing where this was going to go. Everyone worked so insanely hard and I feel like you hear that we were in there every day trying to make the best songs that we could."
A pair of these new songs will be unveiled just prior to the album's release as part of an exclusive Silversun Pickups Track Pack for the top-selling video game Guitar HeroŽ World Tour. In April, players will be able to take the SSPU challenge with three downloadable tracks: two new songs, "Panic Switch" and "Nice to Know You Work Alone," or "Well Thought Out Twinkles" from their breakthrough, Carnavas.
In honor of this release, Gibson/Epiphone will create limited edition guitars with custom SSPU artwork, to be displayed at indie retailers across the country, timed with the annual Record Store Day on April 18. Fans can enter to win one of these unique collaborations via http://www.recordstoreday.com beginning April 1.
