FEATURING COVERS FROM THE AMITY AFFLICTION, NORTHLANE, IN HEARTS WAKE, HANDS LIKE HOUSES, TONIGHT ALIVE + MORE
SET FOR RELEASE ON NOVEMBER 17
To celebrate 20 years since the release of Silverchair’s ARIA #1 seminal sophomore album Freakshow, UNFD will release Spawn (Again): A Tribute To Silverchair on November 17.
Created with the blessing of Silverchair’s team, Spawn (Again): A Tribute To Silverchair showcases some of Australia’s best heavy acts covering some of the band’s biggest hits from their stellar discography. Featuring covers from The Amity Affliction, Hands Like Houses, Tonight Alive, In Hearts Wake, Ocean Grove and more, Spawn (Again) will introduce the talent and legacy of Silverchair to a new generation of heavy music fans.
The first single lifted from the tribute is Northlane’s cover of “Anthem For The Year 2000”. For the band’s guitarist Jon Deiley, this song played a significant part in his formative years: “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.”
The monumental success of Silverchair ushered in a whole new era for local heavy music acts by opening the door for Australian artists on a global scale. For those kids listening to Silverchair on their discmans who went on to form bands such as Northlane, Hands Like Houses and The Amity Affliction, the band’s phenomenal achievements proved anything is possible. To this day, Silverchair remain a huge influence on Australian heavy music.
