GROUP SILVERCHAIR      

Biography

Storming out of Australia with their debut disc, Frog Stomp, Ben Gillies and Silverchair hit the international charts hard with a solid mix of guitar-driven, big, heavy grooves. Freak Show and Neon Ballroom continued the theme of "hit 'em hard" rock. Driven by Ben's solid, wide-open drumming and high-density, two-handed crashing the band is a power to be reckoned with. Intense, high-powered energy is Silverchair's focus, and with Ben delivering the goods from behind the drums, this band has a big future.
