About this album

Neon Ballroom is the third studio album by Australian alternative rock band Silverchair and was released on 8 March 1999. The album debuted at number-one on the ARIA Albums Chart and was certified 4× platinum by ARIA. It was also certified Gold in the United States. It genereated the singles “Anthem for the Year 2000”, “Ana’s Song (Open Fire)”, “Miss You Love”, and “Paint Pastel Princess”. Neon Ballroom out sold Freak Show in North America and throughout the world and has sold a total of 2 million albums worldwide.

Neon Ballroom was an overhaul of the band’s musical style found on its first two albums, Frogstomp and Freak Show. “Anthem for the Year 2000”, for example, retained much of the band’s youthful rock energy but featured a new rock song structure and various electronic effects. Eight years after the album’s release, Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns said: “To me, I honestly feel like our first record was Neon Ballroom. I’ve never felt any different. I don’t feel like our first two albums were Silverchair: that’s our teenage high school band. I don’t like them at all. I listen to them and go, ‘That’s cute’, especially the first one, because Frogstomp we were 14. But the second one we’re like 16, I’m like ‘You’re getting older. You’re running out of chances’”.

From May 1998, Silverchair worked on their third studio album, Neon Ballroom, which had Nick Launay (Birthday Party, Models, Midnight Oil) producing again.
