SILVERCHAIR has confirmed media reports that it will perform at the 2006 Aria Awards, on Sunday, October 29 at Acer Arena. The Newcastle trio will perform a MIDNIGHT OIL song on the night as part of that legendary band's induction into the Aria Hall of Fame.

SILVERCHAIR has sold over six million albums worldwide and enjoyed more top 40 singles in the last decade than any other Australian band. The group's highly anticipated new album will be released in early 2007 but the band has interrupted work on that to prepare for this special Aria appearance.

According to the band's frontman Daniel Johns, sharing a stage with the MIDNIGHT OIL at the Waveaid tsunami benefit was one of the main catalysts behind SILVERCHAIR's decision to return to the studio this year. It's therefore appropriate that the group’s first television appearance in four years will be one that honors MIDNIGHT OIL.

"The invitation to pay tribute to the OILS was just too good to refuse," said Daniel Johns. "They are true musical pioneers and one of the greatest Australian artists of all time."
