A couple of weeks ago chairpage was made aware of a series of petitions South American fans have created in the hope of seeing Silverchair perform there live. This started a ground swell of interest across the Internet and on local media.
Check out the petitions and media links here:
The band was made aware of these petitions and have sent chairpage this message for fans in Chile, Argentina and Brazil.
Hooray!!! The Young Modern vinyl has finally left the factory and is en route to the LAS ready for us to package and post. We will be endeavouring to despatch NEXT WEEK to all those people who have pre-ordered.
Just a reminder that we were only allocated enough stock to satisfy the pre-orders and unfortunately we have none remaining.
While on their recent “Across The Great Divide Tour” Silverchair and Powderfinger did a bit of music collaborating.
