Silversun Pickups will release their fifth studio album, Widow’s Weeds, on June 7.
According to a press release, the record was created in the midst of vocalist-guitarist Brian Aubert fighting off a “deep depression” and finding sobriety.
“The record does have a mourning vibe, but it’s not sad,” he says. “It’s change. It’s growing up, and moving on and letting go of things. And it’s okay to be sad about those things, and mourn them. It’s actually healthy to do so, and take the time to do it. At the end of the day, it’s going to be much better and much more fulfilling when you get through it.”
Fans can get their first taste of Widow’s Weeds with lead single “It Doesn’t Matter Why,” an upbeat, “glammy” tune that acts as one of the record’s lighter moments.
