Stream Album Premiere 'Neck Of The Woods' From The 'Silversun Pickups' - Due Out 05/08!

The wait is finally over to hear the highly anticipated third studio album Neck Of The Woods from the 'Silversun Pickups'.  The album is not set to be officially released until next Tuesday, May 8th, however, you can stream the album premiere in full below from the MTV Buzzworthy Blog on The album, produced by Jackknife Lee (U2, Bloc Party, Weezer, Snow Patrol) is a follow up to sophomore chart-topping success Swoon.  If you were like me and attended the free Silversun Pickups concert at Soldiers Memorial Plaza in July of 2010 as part of the annual Celebrate Saint Louis summer concert series then you have been craving more from this Los Angeles alternative rock band ever since monsoon type thunderstorms cut their performance short half way through their set. It's good to have SSPU back! Hopefully a make-up show follows in Saint Louis on the band's upcoming tour.  Enjoy...

Nick van de Wall, better known as Afrojack, is one of the hottest music producer's and DJ's in the world right now.  His rise to fame as a producer has brought him a roll call of A-list champions – from Pete Tong to David Guetta, and Josh Wink to Fedde Le Grand, along the way collaborating with some of the world’s most respected producers and artists like Guetta, Steve Aoki, Diplo, Kid Cudi, Pitbull and The Black Eyed Peas.

Respected by his colleague DJ’s for his production skills and loved by clubbers for his dancefloor bombs and energetic performances, Afrojack is setting new standards in the industry.  One of his latest club bangers from this year, "Can't Stop Me", featuring Shermanology, is synonymous with Afrojack's rise up the charts.  He can't be stopped!  I have been blowing the speakers in my house out with this track over the last month ever since his appearance at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Afrojack brings his 2012 'Jacked' Tour to St. Louis this summer in June.  You can be assured I won't miss this party!
