We’ve just received an invite here at the Music Feeds offices to a very special press conference next Friday 9th April where Aussie rockers Powderfinger will be announcing details of “their upcoming, major Australian tour”.
Now, it might be a bit of a stretch, but our web monkey noticed something strange about an image embedded in the email invite. The image had the curious alt-text marker ‘Powderchair – Press Conference Invitation’.
Maybe it’s just the lazy remainder of the last time a press conference by the band was announced, although that seems unlikely because Powderfinger have toured several times since their last outing with Silverchair, the 2007 ‘Across The Great Divide’ tour. That tour was affectionately known as the ‘Powderchair’ tour.
Perhaps the two monsters of Australian rock will be announcing yet another combined national tour next week? We’ll let you know when we find out more, but Silverchair have been working on their follow up to 2007’s Young Modern for almost a year now, so an upcoming national tour wouldn’t be out of the question…
