Even though the members of Silverchair are still only 27 years old, the trio has already had four consecutive number 1 albums in their Australian homeland. They’ve received 39 ARIA Award nominations over the last 12 years and they've sold over 6 million albums around the world with records like their debut Frogstomp and its follow-up, Freak Show. Early singles like “Tomorrow”, “Freak”, “Abuse Me”, and “Cemetery” established the group as among the grunge era’s finest. After finally graduating from school, the band released its critically lauded breakthrough, Neon Ballroom, a truly original sounding album that fused heavy rock with orchestral flourishes, synthetic touches, and powerfully emotional lyrics. In 2001 Silverchair’s fourth album, Diorama, explored even more new musical territory and entered the Australian charts at #1, yielding the top 10 singles “The Greatest View” and “Without You”. The album won the group six ARIA Awards (Australia's Grammys) including Best Group and Best Rock Album. It went on to be certified five times platinum.

Now, following a hiatus, Silverchair has returned with its fifth studio full-length, Young Modern. The group’s intent is clear from the brash guitar wail and the pounding drums and bass that give lift-off to the album's opening track, "Young Modern Station”. Then it's straight into the slow burning epic "Straight Lines"--the first single to be lifted from the album--and on through an album full of melody, invention and exuberance. There’s no question--Silverchair is back, and better than ever.
