THE RETURN OF SILVERCHAIR: new album and tour in July

Thursday, 28 June 2007

Multi-platinum rockers Silverchair: singer/guitarist/songwriter Daniel Johns, drummer Ben Gillies and bassist Chris Joannou-is back and stronger than ever, as evidenced on their fifth album, Young Modern, due out July 24 on Eleven: a music company, in association with Warner Music Group.

The trio will celebrate the release with performances of the album's explosive first single, "Straight Lines," on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on Tuesday, July 10 and "Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" on Thursday, July 12. The next day, Silverchair's U.S. headlining tour will launch in San Diego, CA at the House of Blues. WMG labelmates We Are The Fury have been tapped to open all except two of the tour dates (Seattle on July 20 and Vancouver).

On Young Modern, Daniel Johns shared the producer role with Nick Launay (Midnight Oil, Arcade Fire, Talking Heads) who had helmed earlier Silverchair albums Freak Show and Neon Ballroom. Diorama producer, David Bottrill, was brought in as mixer. Paul Mac was again on hand for keyboard duties as he was with the group's two previous albums and legendary Beach Boys collaborator Van Dyke Parks reprised his Diorama role penning orchestrations for three songs which were recorded in Prague with an 80 piece orchestra.

Young Modern
is Silverchair's fifth consecutive #1 Album in their native homeland. They've had more #1 albums there than any other Aussie band in history (Midnight Oil had four, INXS and AC/DC had three).
