Los Angeles indie/rock band Silversun Pickups will get back after it on Aug. 19 with Physical Thrills, the group’s studio album.

The set was produced by Butch Vig and was previewed with a pair of songs, most recently “Alone on a Hill”:

“Scared Together” accompanied the album news as the record’s lead single:

Said Silversun Pickups’ Brian Aubert of the new material:

“This record is alive. It sits somewhere in between a collection of songs and an imaginary friend. A friend that from March of 2020 to April of 2021 would not only introduce itself to me but keep me company through that time of intense isolation. A friend that would remind me that in this instance, the whole world was feeling the same way as well. A comforting, playful, sometimes frightened, often delighted friend. A friend that was finally introduced to Butch Vig, once we got vaccinated, and blew through his studio like a tornado made of cotton candy, leaving little pieces of residue everywhere. But most importantly, this friend REALLY doesn’t give a fuck. I know. That sounds brash. I just mean it’s a thing that is truly free. And now, this little living head space no longer visits me. I visit it through this album. I hope you like it. My friend wouldn’t care. Little rascal.”
