Play Guitar Hero World Tour With Silversun Pickups

Indie rock band Silversun Pickups will play Guitar Hero World Tour with Xbox LIVE Gold Members May 14. If you're an Xbox LIVE Gold Member (if not, upgrade now!), and you want a chance to play with Silversun Pickups, send a friend request to the following Gamertag (Silversun GwF) and be online half an hour before (9:30 P.M. ET) the Game with Fame session starts on Thursday, May 14, 10:00 P.M. ET.

Silversun Pickups stunned the world with their fuzz-laden debut album Carnavas in 2006. It's been a long wait for their newest release, but finally, Swoon has hit the shelves and has cemented the band's reputation. The band consists of neighborhood friends Brian Aubert (vocals), Nikki Monninger (bass), Joseph Lester (keyboards), and Christopher Guanlao (drums). After Carnavas became such a hit, the band went on an extended tour to support the album, but things weren't all rosy when they returned. Aubert says, "It was a dark time when we got back. We had to water the relationships that we had neglected over those two years, and I think this darkness came out on our new record." They rebuilt those relationships to create another successful record. "It can be lonely here, because the city is so disconnected," Aubert explains, "but here you can also escape the noise of the city into your own house, your own private place. But we're all connected by community."
