Silverchair to Reissue ‘Neon Ballroom’ On Vinyl

Fifteen years after it hit store shelves, Silverchair are gearing up to reissue their third studio album, ‘Neon Ballroom,’ via SRCvinyl.

‘Neon Ballroom’ featured the signature brand of alt-rock the Aussie trio would become known for — a slight departure from Silverchair’s first two albums, ‘Frogstomp’ and ‘Freak Show.’

Eight years after the release of ‘Neon Ballroom,’ frontman Daniel Johns shared a similar sentiment. “To me, I honestly feel like our first record was ‘Neon Ballroom.’ I’ve never felt any different,” he said. “I don’t feel like our first to albums were Silverchair — that’s our teenage high school band. I don’t like them at all. I listen to them and go, ‘That’s cute.’”

As Johns pointed out, he and his bandmates, Ben Gillies and Chris Joannou, were only 14 when ‘Frogstomp’ came out. With ‘Neon Ballroom,’ they came into their own, separating themselves from the ’90s grunge pack.

The ‘Neon Ballroom’ reissue is due out Jan. 6, but you can pre-order it now. It will be available as a double-LP on 180-gram limited-edition neon pink, neon blue and black vinyl. Check out the full track list below:
