Silversun Pickups will tour with Cage The Elephant, Foals and Bear Hands + Coachella confirmed‏

Silversun Pickups will embark on the Spring Fling Rock AF 2016 tour this March with Cage The Elephant, Foals and Bear Hands. The 15-city arena tour includes stops at Sacramento’s Sleep Train Arena, Tulsa’s Cox Business Center, Richmond’s Coliseum, Pittsburgh’s Petersen Events Center, Buffalo’s First Niagara Center and Providence’s Dunkin’ Donuts Center. See below for complete tour dates.

Additionally, Silversun Pickups’ critically acclaimed album, Better Nature, is available now via the band’s newly formed label New Machine Recordings.

This is Silversun Pickups’ first new album in more than three years and was produced by Jacknife Lee (U2, Two Door Cinema Club, Crystal Castles), with whom they collaborated with on 2012’s Neck Of The Woods. The album was mixed by Grammy award-winning engineer Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails, Royal Blood).

In August, the band released the first single “Nightlight,” which was accompanied by a hallucinatory music film written and directed by legendary filmmaker Mark Pellington (Arlington Road, The Mothman Prophecies, Foo Fighters, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam). “Nightlight,” which Absolute Punk called “one of the most deliriously catchy and undeniably immediate songs Silversun has made in their careers,” reached Top 5 on the Billboard and Alternative Radio Charts.

Circadian Rhythm (Last Dance),” the latest single off Better Nature, will impact radio on March 8. “Circadian Rhythm (Last Dance)” features a duet between lead singer Brian Aubert and bassist Nikki Monninger. Lead vocalist Brian Aubert explains, “I wrote the music for this song but Nikki wrote the lyrics to it. It’s really an homage to a friend of hers that passed away recently. I think it’s the first time Nikki wrote most of the lyrics. We knew we were going to do this duet together and I really knew she had something going on that needed to come out and I’m happy this was the vessel for it.”
