New Silversun Pickups video: “Panic Switch”

Silversun Pickups are getting all MTV lately. So much so, in fact, that they debuted the video for their newest single, “Panic Switch,” on MTVU. Because those college kids high school kids love bands not on the regular MTV, so they’ll love whatever has “U” attached!

The band’s new album, Swoon, will surely be full of the same. Lets just hope MTV doesn’t dig its claws too deep into something good. Swoon is out April 14 on Dangerbird.
