Not many artists get to enjoy the simultaneous #1 Single and #1 Album on iTunes. In a first on iTunes for Silverchair, "Young Modern" is the first ever pre-order album to go #1 on the charts in Australia!
Silverchair’s eagerly anticipated "Young Modern" album is now exactly 3 weeks away from its street date. There will be two formats for the release. The cheaper Standard Edition will contain one audio disc and normal jewel case packaging. The Special Edition will be a limited release. It will contain the same audio disc plus a bonus DVD that contains short films from the making of the album and it will be packaged in a deluxe fold out digipack. Both versions can be pre-ordered from your local music shop or from the following e-tailers.
"Young Modern" will also be released digitally. iTunes will have a special edition of the album that features a bonus track called “English Garden”. This song features a special guest vocal by the legendary Judith Durham from The Seekers! For more information about this great Australian singer please visit www.judithdurham.com. Fans who pre-order the album via iTunes will also receive a bonus video and shortfilm.
Silverchair’s first new single release since 2003 finally hits Australian stores today.
“Straight Lines” is already the #1 most downloaded song in Australia and the #2 most played song on Australian radio but it will now be available as a CD single that also feature 3 bonus tracks. “All Across The World” (also the closing track from the band’s forthcoming album) is already enjoying high rotation on Triple J. Then there’s the non-album bonus track “Sleep All Day” plus a version of Midnight Oil’s classic “Don’t Wanna Be The One” live from the Homebake festival. To order a copy of the CD single follow the below links.

A short time ago the band was interviewed by music legend Steve Jones on his radio show "Jonesy's Jukebox" on L.A radio 103.1 FM. During the relaxed and entertaining interview Jonesy asked the band about many things including the bands upcoming album "Young Modern". Silverchair also performed a couple of live, accoustic tracks off "Young Modern".
For your listening pleasure here's the start of the interview along with one of the tracks "Reflections Of A Sound". Remember these are live and captured from a web stream so audio quality is not at its best.
