Los Angeles rock band Silversun Pickups will close out their ten-year run with Dangerbird Records by releasing The Singles Collection, due out February 25th. The 11-song set will feature songs from their albums and EPs as well as a new song called "Cannibal."
But the band isn't feeling the least big nostalgic these days. "We have a band amnesia that keeps us from looking at the past," lead singer Brian Aubert tells Rolling Stone. "It's not conscious, it's just how we operate. All these songs are just a part of our fabric and we perform them all often, which keeps them current. So we have modern memories attached to them as well as the historical ones."
The band has no plans yet to head in the studio for a follow-up to 2012's Neck of the Woods, but Aubert hopes the band reconvenves sometime in the near future. "Plans come and go," he says. "We don't like to think about laying down rules and lists. It's best for us to lay low and eventually build momentum organically. We'll start working on the next album when we all come to the conclusion that it's time. We never know when that'll be, but personally, I hope it's sooner than later. I have a lot of weird ideas that need to come out."
