Silversun Pickups will return on May 8th with their third LP, the follow-up to 2009′s Swoon. Entitled Neck of the Woods, the album was produced by Jacknife Lee (U2, R.E.M.) at his home studio in Topanga Canyon, Caliofornia.
Update: Check out the album artwork above.
Speaking with SPIN.com, Pickups frontman Brian Aubert said he began writing the album’s songs during a European vacation. He described the sound as ”like a horror movie,” adding “Swoon was more about what I was feeling at that particular time… whereas with this one, I wanted to see what built me. It was learning why I am the way I am.”
