Event Description:

Silversun Pickups is among the most dynamic and creative rock bands of the modern era, hailed far and wide for their inimitable merging of ethereal melodies and pure sonic force. From the indie rock opening salvo of 2005's PIKUL EP to 2012's far-reaching NECK OF THE WOODS, each successive release has seen the Silverlake, CA-based band boldly venture into uncharted terrain, bravely pushing their imagination and ability towards new and surprising summits. BETTER NATURE marks the debut release from Silversun Pickups' own New Machine Recordings. The label - which takes its name from the PIKUL favorite, "...All The Go Inbetweens" - allows the ever-autonomous band to fully determine its own course without any interference from on high.

Harmonious and intimate, high-flying and deeply personal, BETTER NATURE is a revelatory manifestation of a great band entirely in touch with the muse and each other. Silversun Pickups have once again managed the tricky task of being completely contemporary while also full on forward thinking, now as ever, existing more than a few steps ahead of the curve.

"The people who are invested in us generally like the last record we made every time we put out a new one," lead singer Brian Aubert says. "PIKUL was this really low budget EP and then with CARNAVAS, everyone was like, ‘whoa, this is sharp!' SWOON came out and it was all dreamy so people went ‘well, this is no CARNAVAS.' And then with NECK OF THE WOODS, it was, ‘this is nothing like SWOON.' We can't wait to put this record out so people can tell us how much they liked the last one."

They're bringing Minus the Bear with them to the Crystal Ballroom November 1st - see you there!
