Silverchair Heads Back To US

posted November 19, 2007

Silverchair Heads Back To USAfter sweeping the 2007 ARIA Awards Silverchair have just launched their third American tour for this year. With many dates already sold out, Silverchair’s current US resurgence is going from strength to strength.

Australia’s ARIA Award winning “highest selling” and “best” single of 2007 - “Straight Lines” - is still in rotation at nearly all of the country’s biggest modern rock radio stations and is climbing the charts at the AAA and HotAC formats.

Meanwhile the lead single from 2002’s Diorama - “The Greatest View” - has also been picked up by tastemaker stations across America. The song received little Stateside exposure at the time of its initial release due largely to Daniel Johns’ ill health preventing any touring or promotion at the time. However, in the wake of “Straight Lines” strong U.S. showing it seems many in the media are seizing the chance to revisit this track.

Young Modern recently skyrocketed back up the Australian ARIA charts to #10 after Silverchair scooped the pool at the ARIA’s. The album is also being released on vinyl as a very limited edition sold through's LAS Store.

Silverchair fans should also keep their ears peeled for a new remix of “Straight Lines” by acclaimed Sydney duo The Presets. The radically retooled version can be heard on and Silverchair's Myspace page from Monday 19th November. The remix will be available online soon.
