Nikki Monninger From Silversun Pickups Expecting Twin Girls

Silversun Pickups are very excited to announce that bassist Nikki Monninger is expecting twin girls later this year. She'll keep touring in the fall for as long as it's possible, then Sarah Negahdari from the band The Happy Hollows will be filling in while Nikki is away.

"This is such an exciting and happy time for me -- new record, first babies. I'll lay low for a little while, but they won't be able to keep me off the road for too long," Monninger said about the impending birth. "We'll put the twins to work ASAP.  If they can't lift heavy equipment after their first few months of life, we'll start them off selling merch. In the meantime we're very happy to have Sarah filling in.  We are huge fans of The Happy Hollows and are very excited she'll be joining our family."
