Dear Chester, I only realised a few days ago that it’s nearly been a year …
Celebrating twenty years of the groundbreaking ARIA Album Chart topper Freakshow by Newcastle’s favourite sons Silverchair, the UNFD roster has teamed up for Spawn (Again): A Tribute To Silverchair covers album. Listen to Northlane’s cover of Anthem For The Year 2000:
The tribute album is intended to “introduce the talent and legacy of Silverchair to a new generation of fans,” and is due for release on the 17th of November.
The album features cuts plucked from their celebrated discography, covered by The Amity Affliction, Hands Like Houses, Tonight Alive, In Hearts Wake, Ocean Grove and more.
Northlane guitarist Jon Deiley, explains the impact of the song on the band’s choice: “Anthem For The Year 2000 was the first Silverchair song I ever heard. To me as a young kid, it was intense and heavy and it wasn’t til a few years later that I really began to appreciate the impact their music had on me at an early age. I think Australia’s love for Silverchair runs deep and their influence on Australian music is still felt today. There’s very few bands who can bring together artists to celebrate their work, and Silverchair is one of them.”
Silverchair are platinum Australian rock royalty. Breaking out with at the collective age of 15 with 1994’s Frogstomp, Silverchair released five albums – all hitting #1 on the ARIA Album Chart, and selling over eight million units worldwide
Silverchair is the winner of more ARIA awards than any other artist in history (21 pyramids, natch.) If you aren’t into Silverchair, are you even Australian m8?
