Northlane pays tribute to Silverchair with “Anthem for the Year 2000” rework

If you can, wrap your heads around the fact that it’s been 20 years since Silverchair released Freakshow. The band’s sophomore record, Freakshow saw Silverchair continue their rise to the top as one of Australia’s best young bands, spawning now-beloved songs including “Abuse Me”, “The Door” and of course, “Freak”.

In celebrating the milestone, UNFD have announced the release of a special homage record, Spawn (Again): A Tribute to Silverchair, featuring some of your favourite heavy acts taking the reins. The Amity AfflictionHands Like HousesTonight Alive and Ocean Grove can be heard reworking various Silverchair tracks including “Ana’s Song (Open Fire)”, “Israel’s Son” and “Without You”, while Northlane have put their hands on Silverchair’s iconic “Anthem for the Year 2000”.

“”Anthem for the Year 2000″ was the first Silverchair song I ever heard,” Northlane’s Jon Delley explained. “To me as a young kid, it was intense and heavy and it wasn’t til a few years later that I really begain to appreciate the impact their music had on me at an early age.”

You can pre-order Spawn (Again): A Tribute to Silverchair via 24Hundred and iTunes; the album is out on November 17th.
