Powderfinger albums
Powderfinger are a rock band from Brisbane, Australia.
Formed in 1989, the band has managed to keep the same line up since they hit the big time, Bernard Fanning (Vocals, guitars), Darren Middleton (guitars), Ian Haug (guitars), John Collins (Bass) and Jon Coghill (drums). Powderfinger are winners of nearly every major award in Australia – including the ARIA (Australian Record Industry Awards) for Album of the Year, Best Rock Album and Song of the Year.
Their musical style would simply fall into the post-grunge category, guitar driven dude-rock featuring radio friendly hooks and yarling vocal style. The band has featured prominently in Australian station, Triple J.
The band has released six studio albums and a “best of” collection, despite being a still functioning band, having released their most recent album “Dream Days at the Hotel Existence” in 2007. They are set to release another album in 2009. Despite their popularity Australia, Powderfinger have not had similar success overseas.
They toured with Silverchair on the “Across the Great Divide” Concert, from August to October 2007, trying to raise awareness of the indigenous people of Australia.
