Hands Like Houses Release Silverchair Cover, Announce Acoustic Tour

Canberra’s Hands Like Houses have released a cover of the Silverchair anthem ‘Ana’s Song (Open Fire)’, while also announcing a new acoustic tour.

The band’s cover of the Neon Ballroom cut is the second single to be lifted from Aussie label UNFD’s upcoming Silverchair tribute album Spawn (Again): A Tribute To Silverchair, which has already released a cover of ‘Anthem For The Year 2000’ by Northlane.

“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,” says Hands Like Houses frontman Trenton Woodley.

“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.”

Hands Like Houses have also announced a run of intimate acoustic shows which will see them perform across Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra in January, after they make an appearance at UNIFY Gathering 2018.
