SILVERCHAIR Confirmed For Australia's ROCK-IT Festival

SILVERCHAIR have been confirmed to perform at Western Australia's rock festival Rock-It on Sunday, March 19. It will be the band's second time at Rock-It after they headlined the very first one back in 1999. Other artists playing on the day include GRINSPOON, SHIHAD, COG and FAKER. Tickets are AUS$58 (inc GST/BF) and will be available from Friday, February 10 online from or from the following outlets: Arena Joondalup, Live Clothing Stores (City, Morley, Whitfords, Booragoon, Cannington, Karrinyup, Claremont) and at Beat Karrinyup.

As previously reported, SILVERCHAIR will perform as part of a ground-breaking Festival called "The Great Escape" over the 2006 Easter long weekend (April 14-16, 2006).

SILVERCHAIR recently confirmed rumors that they are currently making music together in regional New South Wales. The band has also announced that they plan to record a new album and do at least a few gigs during 2006.

The trio has sold more than six million albums during the last ten years. Their most recent CD — 2002's "Diorama" — was their most acclaimed and their highest seller in Australia to date.

Following their sold-out "Across The Night Tour" in 2003, SILVERCHAIR took an extended break and worked on other projects before coming together again in 2005 for the Waveaid tsunami benefit concert in Sydney.

The group is currently working up lots of new material which has been written over the last two years. The band will start recording their new album around May for a late 2006 or early 2007 release.

Since 2003, SILVERCHAIR have denied several inaccurate media reports which claimed that the band had split up.
