May 8 is shaping up to be a big red letter day for Silversun Pickups fans: Not only can they look forward to the band’s new album, ‘Neck of the Woods,’ but that night they’ll also be treated to a performance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

‘Woods’ found the band working with producer Jacknife Lee after meeting him by chance while recording a guest appearance on an album for another of his clients, Snow Patrol. Pickups frontman Brian Aubert told Spin that their unplanned association with Lee set the tone for the album, saying, “It’s bizarre. We can’t take credit for any of it. It just accidentally happened.”

In a later interview with KROQ, Aubert described the album’s sound, saying, “Part of it was looking back to really early stuff when we started. There was a playfulness and an experimentation that we lost a little bit of along the way.”

He went on to hint at the meaning behind the title, explaining, “‘Neck of the Woods’ to me sounds sexual. It sounds like a horror movie that’s not around. It sounds like a desire to want to get in but you can’t. Or, a desire to want to pull out something from the center into your fringe…This record feels like a horror movie that hasn’t been invented and it needs the details of your life.”

At the band’s website, fans can pre-order a limited edition version of the album, complete with a handwritten lyric, autographed photo, 60-page book, and more for $79.99 — and you can listen to the first single, ‘Bloody Mary,’ right here.
