AUSTRALIA’S young brigade of metal and hardcore bands have recorded a series of Silverchair classics to honour the Newcastle legends. 

Spawn (Again): A Tribute To Silverchair is out on November 17 and features 10 covers from acts like Amity Affliction (Tomorrow), Northlane (Anthem For The Year 2000), Tonight Alive (Without You) and In Hearts Wake (Freak). The project has the blessing of Silverchair’s Daniel Johns, Ben Gillies and Chris Joannou. 

Northlane’s cover of the Neon Ballroom hit is the first track to be released and the Sydney metalcore band’s heavier version is likely to divide Silverchair fans.

“I think Australia’s love for Silverchair runs deep and their influence on Australian music is still felt today,” Northlane’s Jon Deiley said.
