Silverchair phone cases have always been a bestseller owing to the massive popularity of the Australian post-grunge band.
Formed in 1992 as Innocent Criminals by Daniel Johns (vocals/guitar), Chris Joannou (bass) and Ben Gillies, Silverchair shot to fame after they won a national competition called Pick Me, using their demo of “Tomorrow.”
As a prize, the organisers of the competition recorded the song and filmed a video. Soon after, following a bidding war between labels, Silverchair were signed by Sony Music (a branch of Murmur records) on a three album contract.
Their debut album Frogstomp, which was recorded when the trio were only 15 years old, proved to be an instant hit, reaching number one in Australia and New Zealand. It also peaked at number 9 in the US Billboard top 200.Frogstomp managed to sell more than 4 million copies worldwide.
