13th-Jan-2013 03:13 pm - Interview with Ben from December
Ben was interviewed by Jetstar Magazine in December:

Has the rest of silverchair heard your new stuff?

I haven't shown the new music to Dan or Chris [Joannou, bass guitarist]. It would be like going to my ex-girlfriend with pictures of my new wife. They may have heard it, but I don't take it to them. "

Here is the rest

Getting pretty skinny
Australian drummer Ben Gillies has been staying busy with his new solo project, Bento, while his band Silverchair, which he co-founded remains on an indefinite hiatus.
On October 26th (just two days after Ben Gillies 33rd birthday), Bento will release their twelve track album, Diamond Days, which features an assortment of Gillies' muso mates, including Papa Vs Pretty's frontman / guitarist, Thomas Rawle. Diamond Days, produced by Ben Gillies and Eric J Dubowsky (Faker, Art Vs. Science), is said to have "bristling and glistening rock & roll songs, with Ben up front, singing his heart out, singing his own songs, and opening up like you've never heard him before."

"Being part of something as awesome and mammoth as Silverchair required so much of myself and at times there was very little energy left for other things," says Gillies. "Now I feel as if I'm freed up and can satisfy my own creative output and get about doing what makes sense for me at this point. It's been a while in the making and I'm excited to finally share it."
Prepare yourself – Bento sounds nothing like Silverchair. And if you happened to have heard Ben’s short-lived Tambalane project from a few years back, well, Bento sounds absolutely nothing like that either.
You can download Diamond Days today ... through the Drummer Cafe.

Not much news on Dan lately, except for that very relevant piece from the Daily Telegraph:

Mystery woman for Daniel Johns

SPRING fling or new love?


The pair - seen canoodling at the weekend at Woolloomooloo - looked the happy couple lunching at China Doll, according to onlookers.

The elusive rock star split from long-time girlfriend model Louise Van der Vorst over six months ago, and the last time Johns hit our radar he was getting "very, very cosy" with a dark-haired dude.

A good question was actually raised:

Does anyone know what is Chris doing these days?

by Nathan Jolly

The Veronicas co-wrote a number of songs with Daniel Johns, some of which are slated to appear on their forthcoming third album Life On Mars (the title track features Billy Corgan on guitar, too!). This is a quote from an interview TMN did with Origliasso during the week. Read Monday's TMN for the full feature, in glorious print.

"Because of the way we wrote the last few records–it was with a lot of incredibly talented songwriters, some of the best writers in the world–we were learning a lot about how to write great pop music from people like Max Martin, people like Tony Gad.

"This record was our chance to take on board everything we’ve learnt and get in and collabarate with other forms of artists. You know, you’ve got your Max Martins, and they are brilliant, but they write songs in a very specific way. When you get into a room with someone like Daniel Johns, he is a very unlimited thinker and an unlimited creator. For us to get in there and feed off that energy and to explore and push things way out, that was an unbelievable experience.

"We’ve got some incredible songs from it, so we are both happy."
