MUSIC: SILVERSUN PICKUPS "CARNAVAS"



about: Carnavas is Silversun Pickups' first full-length studio album. It was released on July 26, 2006. The title is an homage to Aubert's Greek heritage. Some suppliers were also given copies of The Tripwire Session: Live In Chicago, a four track EP.

As of the Billboard 200 dated June 30, 2007, it has sold 183,864 copies.

The album generated two successful singles on the US Modern Rock chart. "Lazy Eye" hit #5 and "Well Thought Out Twinkles" hit #9, the first one in 2007 and the following peaked at #9 in 2008.

Recently, in the 1st trailer for the video game, Tony Hawk's Proving Ground, Well Thought Out Twinkles was playing and will be likely to be featured in the video game soundtrack.

The
CD cover for Carnavas is a slightly edited partial image of artist Darren Waterston's 2004 painting entitled "Summit". The inlay, also featured on the Silversun Pickups' website and Myspace page, is titled "Becoming Tree".
