Former Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns is currently out promoting his new pop leaning album Talk, and the prospects of reuniting with his former bandmates doesn’t appear to be on the cards.
‘It was starting to feel like work for me and I started to feel like ‘that’s that guy from Silverchair’,’ the singer revealed in an interview with Today’s Richard Wilkins on Tuesday.
‘I didn’t want to die wondering, or kind of looking back when I’m in my sixties, thinking, “Probably should have done that solo single,'” he says, adding that a future reunion with Silverchair is highly unlikely.
‘It’s just not something that excites me at the moment, but I’m actually really proud of what we did.’
Former Silverchair drummer Ben Gillies had an interesting response when Alternative Nation asked him about a possible reunion last week, “Ha! Maybe… if Dan decides to talk to his old mates again.” Silverchair went on ‘indefinite hiatus’ in 2011.
Alternative Nation also recently published a retrospective on Silverchair’s 20th anniversary titled ‘Reflections Of A Sound.’
