Silversun Pickups, Manchester Orchestra and Cage the Elephant Doing North America

(Filter) While Silversun Pickups' "Panic Switch" hit #1 on Billboard's Hot Modern Rock Songs chart in the U.S. last week, the band is enjoying their success from abroad.

The quartet is currently touring Europe in support of sophomore LP, Swoon (Dangerbird Records) but will return to the States in August for a round of headline shows and festival appearances. SSPU will receive support from Manchester Orchestra and Cage the Elephant, who will also join the band for their Canadian dates.

Most recently, MTV has added "Panic Switch" into rotation, joining sister stations MTV2 and mtvU. Meanwhile, fan favorite MTV "Unplugged" will make a triumphant return this summer, offering a series of monthly exclusive performances on MTV.com; Silversun Pickups' performance will go live in July.
