Hands Like Houses Release Silverchair Tribute & Announce Tour Dates
Hands Like Houses have dropped their contribution to the upcoming Silverchair tribute album, Spawn (Again): A Tribute To Silverchair, with their take on ‘Ana’s Song (Open Fire)’. The album is set to be released on November 17 via UNFD and, with the blessing of Silverchair themselves, will feature some of the best bands signed to UNFD putting their spin on tracks from the iconic band.
On top of this, Hands Like Houses have also announced a string of intimate acoustic tour dates in 2018. The Resonates Tour, which will kick off in Melbourne on January 18, will be the first time the band have toured in a completely stripped back format.
For Hands Like Houses frontman Trenton Woodley, ‘Ana's Song (Open Fire)’ is the perfect blend of aggression and honesty, but still has enough room for the band to inject their own style and sound. "It's impossible to be an Australian band and not have some recognition and appreciation for the huge role Silverchair has played in Aussie music, and the pathway it created for rock in particular. Daniel Johns has such a strong songwriting style, so when were were asked if we were interested in this compilation, it was an intimidating but exciting prospect to try and bring in our own take on their music, while still retaining and respecting what made them such massive hits. We're stoked on how it came out and hope it, along with the rest of the compilation, does justice to the significance of Silverchair's role in Australian music history!"
