Silversun Pickups exploring "all the eras" on final "Better Nature" tour

Credit: Claire Marie VogelSilversun Pickups are in the middle of a North American tour, their last run in support of their latest album, 2015's Better Nature. The band isn't just focused on Better Nature, though -- frontman Brian Aubert says their set list reflects the band's whole career.

"The [set list] we're doing right now, I just really, really like it a lot," Aubert says. "It feels like it goes everywhere -- everything that we've done is there, all the eras."

The tour also includes a benefit show for Puerto Rico, which takes place this Saturday, November 25 in Los Angeles. The members of Silversun felt they "had to something" to help the recovery effort in Puerto Rico following the devastation left by Hurricane Maria.

"We're gonna play our hearts out," Aubert says of the show.

Aubert's been through the wringer on this tour.  He's been battling a broken arm and a bout with the flu, and he plans "bury myself in the ground for a little while" after the final show, held December 4 in Seattle. When he reemerges, he and the rest of the Pickups hope to start thinking about new music.

"The holidays is a good time to shut down, and then the beginning of the year...all the stuff that's going in your head you kinda start to iron them out, and then you just gotta start," says Aubert.
