Silversun Pickups have announced their first new album in four years, Widow’s Weeds. The Better Nature follow-up, out everywhere June 7 via the band’s own New Machine Recordings, will also feature production by rock-mixing legend Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth).
“This was the first album where we were open. We were exposed,” lead singer Brian Aubert explains of Widow’s Weeds. “This album feels the most naked out of all of them.”
The band have also shared the first single and video from their forthcoming album, an urgent, string-heavy track titled “It Doesn’t Matter Why,” which can be viewed below.
