Silversun Pickups confirm a thirty-date tour of the United States, throughout February and March of 2020 and in support of their latest studio album, Widow’s Weeds. The band will perform in cities including Los Angeles, Austin, Washington D.C., as well as two shows at New York City’s Brooklyn Steel (full dates and information below). Eliza & The Delusionals are confirmed as the support act on the February dates of this tour, and the Australian band has been #1 at Sirius Alt Nation with their single “Just Exist” for the last three months, intermittently. Support for the March dates will be confirmed soon.

The band today also shares their Alan Del Rio Ortiz directed music video for “Don’t Know Yet” via Billboard, along with an interview. Brian Aubert of the band reveals: “We thought that his [Ortiz] idea seems to feel really right with the song. We couldn’t figure out how the song necessarily worked in some more clever, narrative thing. We just realized, I think, it’s time we have something very, very fundamental, like a really well-shot performance video. We felt like maybe people want to see us in this one.

Silversun Pickups’ 5th studio album, Widow’s Weeds, is out now via their own New Machine Recordings label. The band enlisted Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth) to produce their latest, an extroverted and open album about rebirth and renewal. Said lead singer Brian Aubert about Widow’s Weeds: “This was the first album where we were open. We were exposed. I see how that can be scary to people, but for us we really thrived on that.”

Bursting out of the Silverlake, CA music scene in the early 2000s, Silversun Pickups– lead singer Brian Aubert, bassist Nikki Monninger, drummer Christopher Guanlao and keyboardist Joe Lester– have maintained their independence throughout their storied career. They released their first three albums on the local label, Dangerbird Records, before founding their own label, New Machine Recordings, for the release of their most recent album, Better Nature. Now almost two decades into their career, they remain a vital and important rock band and have racked up ten Top 20 hits on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart, as well as over a million records sold in the US.

About Eliza & The Delusionals
Acclaimed indie rock band Eliza & The Delusionals are one of the most exciting groups breaking out of the Australian music scene. Led by colourful front woman Eliza Klatt, they have been making waves since their inception in early 2015, with a sound that has been likened to that of Catfish & The Bottlemen and Alex Lahey. The band are now celebrating the release of their new track “Just Exist.” Landing their new single on multiple Spotify playlists including Fresh Finds, Local Noise, Chords + Cardigans and triple j playlist Home & Hosed the Eliza & The Delusionals momentum only seems to be growing.
