Silversun Pickups’ fourth studio album, Better Nature, which Entertainment Weekly called “…worth the wait,” was released via the band’s own New Machine Recordings.
Produced by Jacknife Lee (U2, Two Door Cinema Club, Crystal Castles) and mixed by GRAMMY winner Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails, Royal Blood), Better Nature is a revelatory manifestation of a band entirely in touch with the muse and each other. Hailed for their inimitable merging of ethereal melodies and pure sonic force, Silversun Pickups are among the most dynamic and creative rock bands of the modern era. From the indie rock opening salvo of their Pikul EP to the far-reaching Neck of the Woods, each successive release has seen the Silver Lake-based band boldly venture into uncharted terrain, bravely pushing their imagination and ability toward new and surprising summits. Their album Swoon featured the Billboard Hot 100 hit Panic Switch and earned the group a nomination for Best New Artist at the GRAMMYs in 2009. Better Nature marks the debut release from Silversun Pickups’ own New Machine Recordings. The label — which takes its name from the Pikul favorite, “…All The Go Inbetweens” — allows the ever-autonomous band to fully determine its own course without any interference.
