It’s going to be a busy week for Australian Silverchair fans.

The band’s long awaited new album – Young Modern – hits stores on Saturday morning on the back of today’s news that its lead single “Straight Lines” has stayed at #1 on the national charts for a second consecutive week.

Triple J have announced that Young Modern will be their feature album throughout this week and even though it’s yet to be released the disc is already #1 on the iTunes charts based on pre-orders alone.

On Friday night the group will launch Young Modern with a very special live show in Sydney. From 6.30pm this Sunday that gig will be broadcast live across Australia on the Nova radio network as follows.

Nova 969 Sydney
Nova 100 Melbourne
Nova 1069 Brisbane
Nova 919 Adelaide
Nova 937 Perth

Later that night Silverchair will perform live on the premiere edition of Channel 10’s new Sunday edition of “Rove” which starts at 8.30pm.

Then at noon on Monday April 2 tickets will finally go onsale to the general public for the group’s brief and intimate “Young Modern Tour”. Dates and venues for those shows are listed on the Tours section.

All shows will go onsale to the general public at noon on April 2nd. A reminder that special arrangements have been put in place to provide a limited allocation of tickets for chairpage viewers and members of the chairpage mailing list from 9am to 12 noon EST Friday March 30 from the Silverchair online ticketing store -
