Silversun Pickups Chicago Tickets
The Silversun Pickups is one of the most promising acts out of the LA music scene. Even though they have been performing since the early 2000s, their 2015 album “Better Nature” raised them to prominence in the music industry. Since then, the band has been touring the country (and world) with their music. They have received great acclaim for their organic music and powerhouse performances. With most of the band in their forties, they have been able to retain the rock tradition of the 90’s and blend it with modern nuances. Purchase some Silversun Pickups Chicago tickets for yourself and become party to their performance at the Riviera Theatre.
“Better Nature”, Silversun Pickups’ latest album is a completely redefined sound for the band. According to guitarist Brian Aubert, “This album is like its own quantum universe. It’s kind of unstable.” This certainly makes this a fairly self-aware album, as matured as the band’s members who each have families to support and children to look after. Songs such as “Friendly Fires” and “Cradle” depart from the band’s previous angst-filled tracks and instead struggle to find meaning in a rather dismal world.
The tracks are more free-wheeling in nature, with cranked up guitar riffs and improvised music which gives the band a fresh feel. This particular album is influenced by Jacknife Lee, its producer, who is also known for his successful collaboration with bands like U2 and R.E.M. Also, Nine Inch Nails’ mixing engineer, Alan Moulder has also been involved in the recording of this album. However, the secret ingredient for this album is undeniably SSPU’s interplay and chemistry. The band has been together for over a decade now and it shows, especially on stage. They have presence and their impromptu banter keeps audience’s engaged.
