Dangerbird Records is excited to announce a newly confirmed Silversun Pickups headlining tour! The Grammy-nominated, Los Angeles-based quartet, fresh off a hugely successful arena tour supporting Muse, will head out with Against Me! and Henry Clay People opening. This first leg of dates starts in Orlando, FL, on June 15th and ends in Milwaukee, WI, on July 4th. More dates will be added soon.
In a review of the tour with Muse, the San Jose Mercury News hailed: "As good as [Silversun Pickups] is on record, the group showed in Oakland that it can achieve even greater heights on the live stage... where the Pickups' brand of jammed-out alt-rock truly shines."
