Silverchair To Pay Tribute To Midnight Oil
|Article added on 19 Oct 2006
SILVERCHAIR have sold over six million albums worldwide and enjoyed more top 40 singles in the last decade than any other Australian band. The group's highly anticipated new album will be released in early 2007 but they have interrupted work on that to prepare for this special ARIA Award's appearance.
According to the band's frontman Daniel Johns, sharing a stage with the Oils at the 'Waveaid' tsunami benefit was one of the main catalysts behind SILVERCHAIR's decision to return to the studio this year. It's therefore appropriate that the group's first television appearance in four years will be one that honors MIDNIGHT OIL.
'The invitation to pay tribute to the Oils was just too good to refuse', said Daniel Johns. 'They are true musical pioneers and one of the greatest Australian artists of all time.'
MIDNIGHT OIL's success, changed the Australian music scene and paved the way for bands that don't fit the traditional stereotypes. They have made a career out of making noise about the important issues. They brought a new sense of political and social immediacy to pop music with incendiary hits like Beds Are Burning and Blue Sky Mine, which brought global attention to the issues of, respectively, Aboriginal land rights and asbestos workers. MIDNIGHT OIL always put its money where its mouth was - in addition to staging benefit performances for groups like Greenpeace and Save the Whales, former singer Peter Garrett is now fighting from the frontline as a Member of Parliament for the Federal Labour Party in the NSW seat of Kingsford-Smith.
SILVERCHAIR's return to the ARIA stage comes 4 years ago after their acclaimed album Diorama won them six ARIA Awards including 'Best Group' and 'Best Rock Album'. In a last minute surprise on that memorable night in 2002 the trio returned to the stage to deliver a searing performance of The Greatest View which catapulted their album back into the national top 10. The ARIA triumph capped a roller coaster year for the band - a year which in many ways traced the journey of 'Diorama' itself - from bleak times into a much happier new dawn.
SILVERCHAIR recently announced that they will unveil some songs from their forthcoming album with a handful of concert appearances over summer. The festivals on which they will appear - Homebake and Pyramid - sold out in record time and their hometown show in Newcastle on New Years Eve is also selling at record speed.
Don't miss SILVERCHAIR's tribute to MIDNIGHT OIL as they are inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame, to be broadcast exclusively on Network Ten and brought to you by Motorola at 7.30pm on Sunday October 29th.
