Silversun Pickups - Silversun Pickups Bassist Pregnant

Silversun Pickups rocker Nikki Monninger is pregnant with twin girls.
The bassist announced her happy news on Wednesday (22Aug12), but assured fans she will be joining her bandmates on tour for a number of dates this autumn (12).
Sarah Negahdari from The Happy Hallows will fill in for the rocker when she decides to step down from the band's commitments and take maternity leave.
A statement issued by Monninger reads, "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."
The star also jokes about getting her kids involved in the music business as soon as they are old enough, adding, "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 (merchandise).
"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."
Silversun Pickups are due to hit the road on a North American tour on 1 September (12), before heading to Australia for a string of dates in November (12).
