Silversun Pickups announce tour dates for June and July

Silversun Pickups promised us tour dates and now they’ve delivered. On Monday (April 29), the California-founded band announced plans to embark on a United States-centric summer tour later this year. The upcoming trek will find the group performing at venues across the country throughout June and July.

The 12-stop outing begins on June 2 at Velvet Jones in Santa Barbara and concludes a month and a half later on July 20 at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville (New Jersey). There is a massive gap in the tour schedule in late-June/early-July which may mean that new shows will be added at a later time.

Following a short time off, the group will make their way to Del Mar, California in mid-September for the annual KAABOO Del Mar Festival.

Pre-sales for the upcoming excursion go live this Wednesday, May 1, at 10 a.m. local time. General ticket sales begin this Friday, May 3, at 10 a.m. local time.

The summer tour is in support of the group’s fifth studio album Widow’s Weeds. The record is due out June 7 through New Machine Recordings. The album was produced by super producers Butch Vig.

Pre-orders for Widow’s Weeds are currently available on the band’s website where they’re offering vinyls, cassettes, and even a test pressing of the record.

Widow’s Weeds is the follow-up to 2014’s Better Nature.
