Tuesday marked the release of Silversun Pickups’ third full length studio album.

Neck Of The Woods marks the band’s first album since 2009 and see’s the group evolving upon an already heavy sound. Often compared to groups like The Smashing Pumpkins and My Bloody Valentine, Silversun Pickups add on to their distorted sound by adding thick synthesizer layers effectively fusing both new and old sounds that made the group a hit in the first place.

The album is available for a full length stream and is sure to be on year end lists as one of the top albums. Coming in at 59 minutes, this is the longest album that the group has produced to date with a total of 11 tracks.

Neck Of The Woods was produced by Jacknife Lee (Snow Patrol/U2) and was released via Dangerbird Records.

To celebrate the band’s new release, the foursome joined 300 fans and friends in the Red Bull Sound Space at KROQ for a live performance and Q&A. Frontman Brian Aubert gave some insight into the recording process and how the record differs from previous Silversun Pickups albums. He also shared his thoughts on the loss of Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch.
