Silverchair have been back in the studio over the last few weeks!
Daniel, Ben & Chris recently got together in a remote studio for a bit over 3 weeks to work on some new songs.
They put down a bunch of ideas & Daniel has since gone away to write and develop the songs further.
The band made a small video themselves as a little special something just for you. There are no release plans yet.

Silverchair and touring buddies Powderfinger took home the gong for BEST MUSIC DVD at the 2008 ARIA Music Awards held in Sydney last night. The deluxe triple disc "Across The Great Divide" DVD features full length live sets by both bands and a behind the scenes doco "Behind The Great Divide". Silverchair's Chris and Powderfinger's Darren were on hand to collect the ARIA and thanked "everyone who came along to any of the shows". They also made special mention to the great work done by Reconciliation Australia.
Chris Joannou recently took to the stage at the Annandale Hotel in Sydney. Playing bass as part of an awesome supergroup that featured Tim Rogers, Paul Dempsey and Tex Perkins.
This was no impromptu performance! The boys got together to play some classic songs (think Slayer/Black Flag) in support of the Lovell's Lager launch.
A good pal of Silverchair's, Matt Lovell (he's worked on Freak Show, Neon Ballroom & Diorama) was launching his very own lager on the night.
