The Silversun Pickups’ members are buddies even before the band officially came together. Brian Aubert, Nikki Monninger, Christopher Guanlao, and Joe Lester have been playing together or one with common friends in gigs even before the Silversun Pickups line-up has been finalized. The Silversun Pickups complement each other not only musically but also emotionally; this becomes very apparent as they produce great music. The Silversun Pickups are at ease with each other be it on a gig or simply hanging out.

The band’s beginnings was narrated by Silversun Pickups front man Brian Aubert as, “In the beginning, we were just trying to figure out what we wanted to do, didn’t even know if this was what we wanted to do. But we were playing clubs while we were learning – and I was learning to be a frontman all of a sudden. But after a little while we started honing in on where things were going and what we liked and didn’t like. It was like trial by fire, playing on stage all the time. It was scary, but you learn fast that way.” 

The Silversun Pickups’ humble beginnings did not deter them from becoming the band they are today. Now, The Silversun Pickups have an impressive following and is even recognized by Filter Magazine as a band to watch out for.

The Silversun Pickups have been able to produce two releases so far. The Silversun Pickups first release is the Pikul EP in 2005.
