In the first episode of Stories of Us, host Sarah Grynberg sat down for a lively chat with Ben Gillies, the talented drummer from the iconic Australian band Silverchair. While reminiscing about the band’s glory days, Ben delved into their ‘indefinite hibernation‘ status and whether there’s a chance of Silverchair making a triumphant return to the music scene.
A Brief Flashback: The Silverchair Legacy
Silverchair, formed in 1992 when its members were just 12 years old, took the world by storm with their distinctive grunge and alternative rock sound. Hits like “Tomorrow” and “Freak” catapulted them to international fame. Over the years, the band evolved, experimenting with their music and releasing several acclaimed albums.
However, in recent years, fans have been left wondering if Silverchair’s indefinite hiatus is actually permanent. According to Ben:
“The official band statement is still that we’re in indefinite hibernation. We haven’t actually come out with an official statement saying that we’ve broken up. So, Silverchair is still in indefinite hibernation.”
Is a Silverchair Reunion on the Horizon?
The big question remains: Will Silverchair ever grace the stage again? While Ben’s statement may give fans a glimmer of hope, it’s important to note that it seems like he was joking about the band’s status.
Nonetheless, the mere possibility of a Silverchair reunion is enough to excite fans around the world. The band’s music holds a special place in the hearts of many, and the idea of experiencing their electric live performances once more is a tantalizing thought.
So, while we may not have received an official “get the band back together” announcement, the prospect of Silverchair returning from their indefinite hibernation is a delightful notion that keeps fans eagerly awaiting what the future might hold. One can only hope that someday, we’ll once again witness the magic of Silverchair on stage.
