Silversun Pickups Announce New Album!

Today, the Silversun Pickups' announced their third studio album, "Neck of the Woods" due out May 8th, 2012. Neck of the Woods contains 11 tracks, running 58 minutes and 50 seconds in length. "Bloody Mary (Nerve Endings)" will be the first single.




The third album from Los Angeles fuzz-rockers Silversun Pickups, Neck of the Woods (due May 8) started with a chance meeting when the band stumbled across Grammy-winning producer Jacknife Lee (R.E.M., U2, Weezer) while recording guest vocals for a Snow Patrol track. But Pickups frontman Brian Aubert is quick to point out that pretty much everything about the album — from producer to studio location right down to its found-photo album art — has been serendipitous. "It's bizarre," the affable singer/guitarist tells SPIN, a day after hearing the record in full for the first time. "We can't take credit for any of it. It just accidentally happened."



For one example of a happy accident, Aubert was surprised to discover Lee's home studio was smack in the middle of the Topanga Canyon woods, minutes from where the singer grew up. "I hadn't been back in years," he recalls. "I thought it would be fun to walk down my old street. It was like playing with fire a little bit. So much came back that I had forgotten about and it was a really emotional experience. I just realized this place and the feelings I had are still ingrained in me."



Aubert says the songs sound "like a horror movie," all of them beginning to percolate while he was country-hopping and people-watching during a European vacation. "[2009's] Swoon was more about what I was feeling at that particular time," he says, "whereas with this one, I wanted to see what built me. It was learning why I am the way I am."


I hope this album is just as flawless as Carnavas, Swoon, and the Seasick EP! What are your favorite SSPU songs?
