Silversun Pickups reveal new album details

LA rockers release 'Swoon' this spring

Silversun Pickups reveal new album details
Silversun Pickups have revealed details of their highly anticipated forthcoming album.

'Swoon', the follow-up to their 2006 debut 'Carnavas', is due out in the US on April 14.

The album was produced and mixed by Dave Cooley and Tony Hoffer, who also worked on the band's first album.

'Swoon' "sounds like a nervous breakdown," frontman Brian Aubert said in a statement. "I felt that we started this thing with a complete blank slate just kind of staring at a big mountain, not knowing where this was going to go. Everyone worked so insanely hard and I feel like you hear that we were in there every day trying to make the best songs that we could."

"This is the first time we've ever actually written anything straight through, then gone into a studio," he added.

The band will unveil two new songs prior to the album release via the 'Guitar Hero World Tour' video game. 'Panic Switch' and 'Nice to Know You Work Alone' will be available as downloads for game players.

The band are also gearing up for a performance at California's Coachella Festival in April.
