Daniel Johns + Luke Steele = Hathaway / Palmer?

Hey, Silverchair fans… check out this update (6/1/2009 news)… (click for update blog)

Silverchair & the Dissociatives frontman Daniel Johns has a new collaboration with Luke Steele… now called Hathaway/Palmer.  Yeah, I don’t understand the name either…  As of now, there are no concrete plans to release the “acoustic pop” record, but Chairpage will post any news once they get it.

For people uninitiated with Daniel Johns… he and two school mates, Ben Gillies & Chris Joannou, started the band Silverchair at age 15.  What were you doing at age 15?

(no, they’re not Hanson)

Silverchair grew out of their grunge & teen angst and by their third album (Neon Ballroom) started making more diverse music.  Their last two albums (Diorama and Young Modern) are two of my favorite albums as of late.  Daniel was also in a side project, The Dissociatives, with DJ/keyboardist Paul Mac.

Some choice Daniel Johns’ albums:

For those uninitiated with Luke Steele (like myself), apparently he’s the singer from the Australian band The Sleepy Jackson.  His music seems like a good mix with Daniel’s… I’m excited for what’s to come…

From Luke Steele…

“Dan is William Hathaway and I’m Walter Palmer so it’s going to be Hathaway and Palmer,” Steele said. “It kind of started out a White Album thing because we don’t have a band, it was acoustics. And from there it kind of went a bit haywire. It’s pretty pop. I guess it’s quite low down, there’s country songs…”
