Silverchair Song Added to Iconic Sound Library
Silverchair’s breakout hit, ‘Tomorrow’, has been added to the National Film & Sound Archive’s ‘Sounds of Australia’ library.
The collection, established in 2007, collates Australia’s most culturally, historically and aesthetically significant sound recordings.
Recorded in 1994, the track featured on The Newcastle trio’s debut EP, before reaching a wider audience on the band’s debut full-length, ‘Frogstomp’, the following year.
Still in high school at the time of the album’s release, the Daniel Johns’ & Ben Gillies penned ‘Tomorrow’ spent six weeks at Number One on the ARIA singles chart in 1995. It later won Single of the Year, Highest Selling Single and Breakthrough Artist – Single at the 1995 ARIA Awards.
The track also introduced Silverchair to an international audience after it hit Number One on the US Billboard modern rock and was the most-played song on American modern rock radio throughout 1995.
