A New Tomorrow: The Silverchair Story

Overview


A New Tomorrow tells the complete and unexpurgated story of Silverchair. Apter documents how Johns and his two schoolmates, drummer Ben Gillies and bassman Chris Joannou, graduated from the loft above the Gillies' family garage to centerstage of Madison Square Garden—all within the time it typically takes most bands to record their first single.

Overview


A New Tomorrow tells the complete and unexpurgated story of Silverchair. Apter documents how Johns and his two schoolmates, drummer Ben Gillies and bassman Chris Joannou, graduated from the loft above the Gillies' family garage to centerstage of Madison Square Garden—all within the time it typically takes most bands to record their first single. When the dust settled and they discovered their debut album, Frogstomp, had sold almost three million copies. Silverchair was then faced with an even bigger challenge, as they attempted to prove they were much more than "Nirvana In Pyjamas." With the release of their 2002 masterpiece, Diorama, Silverchair firmly established their own musical identity, while Johns has developed into a songwriter with few peers in modern music. Featuring exclusive interviews with the band and all of those who have worked with Silverchair over their rollercoaster ride of a career, A New Tomorrow covers all of the band members' solo work, the Johns/Imbruglia nuptials, the band's "rebirth" at the WaveAid fundraiser, and a sneak preview of their new studio album.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for original edition - TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS: "An engaging schoolkids-to-rockmasters odyssey, Tomorrow Never Knows brilliantly shadows Silverchair’s career and pre-history... a riveting rockography."  —Rolling Stone (four stars)

"From the opening chapter of this excellent rock biography (a genre high on output, but generally low on quality), Jeff Apter makes a compelling case... The [Silverchair] adventure may yet continue. If not, this book will stand as a fitting finale."  —The Bulletin on Tomorrow Never Knows

"It’s an insider’s account, by someone who understands how bands really work and recognises the many movers and shakers who assist the success of musically curious bands and their albums."  —Rob Hirst, Midnight Oil on Tomorrow Never Knows

"Fantastic! I really like it ... much better and accurate than many others I have read about other bands I have worked with."  —Nick Launay, producer, Freak Show and Neon Ballroom, on Tomorrow Never Knows
