The inexhaustible Silversun Pickups just keep going and going and going. Here we thought they were at home in California getting some much needed rest for the holidays, but to the contrary, they remain on the road, packing ‘em in, as they have done since the release of Carnavas in July 2006. MTV is also giving them much love lately, with promo commercials starring the band harassing Carson Daly. Upgrade! If you’ve worn out your copy of Carnavas, here’s some good news. A six-song EP containing four versions of massive hit “Lazy Eye” and other gems will debut digitally on December 11 on iTunes, and worldwide on December 18. (Photo by JCP)

LOS ANGELES, December 3, 2007 – The Silversun Pickups are getting a
little makeover in time for the holiday season. With debut CARNAVAS
(Dangerbird Records) still going strong, two of the album tracks have
been remixed. The various revamped versions of radio hit “Lazy Eye,” as
well as “Little Lovers So Polite,” are dance-floor ready compliments of
the likes of Jimmy Tamborello (Postal Service), label mate The One AM
Radio and KCRW’s Jason Bentley, among others. The six-song EP will
become available digitally in the U.S. December 11, exclusive on
iTunes, followed by the worldwide release December 18, also on iTunes.

With newly added blips, bleeps and pulses, “Lazy Eye” takes on a new
shape in four different versions, yet remains true to the original,
melodies and Aubert’s distinct vocals intact. One version of “Little
Lovers So Polite” integrates steady drumbeats into its electronic
grooves while the other thumps with distorted vocals and heavy

A year after their acclaimed debut, the second radio single, “Well
Thought Out Twinkles” continues to climb radio charts, this week
jumping to #11 on the Modern Rock chart, poised to reach the Top 10.

Silversun Pickups will end off their busy year with a handful of shows
across the U.S.
