'This album feels the most naked out of all of them,' said frontman Brian Aubert in a statement.

Silversun Pickups debuted the video for their new single “It Doesn’t Matter Why” on Thursday (April 11) and announced their fifth album, Widow’s Weeds is on its way. In the new clip, the band dances frenetically alongside a host of everyday people craving human connection.

“You think about us all the time/ Don’t/ Because it doesn’t matter why we’re known/ We’re just known,” lead singer Brian Aubert demands on the track’s catchy chorus, as the dancers wildly bounce and bop in front of a stark white backdrop.

The band’s new LP will be released June 7 via their own label, New Machine Recordings, and arrives four years after their previous album, Better Nature, in 2015.
