Indie rockers Silversun Pickups will embark on a 30-date U.S tour in February and March of next year in support of their latest studio album, Widow’s Weeds.

The tour includes a March 18 stop at the Agora.

Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth) produced the band's new album that the group has said is about rebirth and renewal.

“This was the first album where we were open,” says singer Brian Aubert in a press release. “We were exposed. I see how that can be scary to people, but for us, we really thrived on that.”

Tickets for the Agora show go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday.
