Silversun Pickups Share Evolution of Sound Before Starting US Tour

Important in the band’s most recent recording process was the recruitment of legendary producer, Butch Vig, famous for many projects, including the diamond-selling Nirvana record, Nevermind, he produced. Vig, says Aubert, despite his list of accomplishments stays hungry, curious, invested. He doesn’t rest on his laurels or past successes when in the studio.

Nevermind 

Released on September 24, 1991 …

Wisco and the MadCity have a soft spot in their collective hearts for “Nevermind.”  The album was produced by Butch Vig and the band traveled out to Vig’s Smart Studios in Madison, Wisconsin, recording from April 2 to 6, 1990.

On April 6, the band played a local show in Madison with fellow Seattle band Tad. Vig began to mix the recordings while the band hung out in Madison, giving an interview to Madison’s community radio station WORT on April 7.

Nevermind was released on September 24, 1991 and was responsible in part for bringing both alternative rock and grunge music to a mainstream audience.  It’s #17 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and in 2005, the Library of Congress added it to the National Recording Registry, which collects “culturally, historically or aesthetically important” sound recordings from the 20th century.
