Interview Ė Silversun Pickups
05/16/12 at 06:32 PM by Jonathan Bautts
Keyboardist Joe Lester talks about the direction Silversun Pickups took on new album Neck of the Woods, its psychological underpinnings, writing longer songs and why thereís no bonus to being on a major label.

"With Dangerbird, thereís, like, eight people that work there. Itís six blocks from my house, so if thereís a problem I can just walk down and talk to them about it. I canít really imagine a better situation for wanting to put out a record and then go about doing it. Why the fuck would we go with a major label? Our record isnít going to sell 800,000 copies in the first week, and weíd just get buried by whatever the next crappy pop band is. We have everything we need from a small label. Itís not like thereís these crazy deals you hear about, like R.E.M. getting $90 million for 16 records or something ridiculous. They donít even do that anymore, so we couldnít even be assholes and take a bunch of money. Thatís not even there, so what do they have to offer?"
