Australian band Silverchair is back with new album which immediately contains a chart topping single "Straight Lines".
Silverchair's fifth studio album that is not yet released has shown its early success. The first single titled "Straight Lines" from the album "Young Modern" sits at #1 in Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Top 100 chart in week 12. It has also scored at the ARIA digital chart after the digital release on February 2, two months ahead of the CD version.
With the position, the band becomes the 3rd Australian band to have three #1 singles after The Easybeats and The Seekers. Before "Straight Lines", the band has also topped the chart through 1995' "Tomorrow" and 1997's "Freak".
"Young Modern" will be released in Australia on March 31 and finally hit the international stores in July. Following are several festivals to preview the album in US and Europe starting from June until August. An Australian gig meanwhile, is scheduled to set out before the local release date so that the money can help to fund the release.
