  • Powderfinger were an Australian rock band formed in Brisbane in 1989. From 1992 until their break-up in 2010 the line-up consisted of vocalist Bernard Fanning, guitarists Darren Middleton and Ian Haug, bass guitarist John Collins and drummer Jon Coghill. The group's third studio album Internationalist, peaked at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart in September 1998. They followed with four more number-one studio albums in a row, Odyssey Number Five (September 2000), Vulture Street (July 2003), Dream Days at the Hotel Existence (June 2007) and Golden Rule (November 2009). Their Top Ten hit singles are "My Happiness" (2000), "(Baby I've Got You) On My Mind" (2003) and "Lost and Running" (2007). Powderfinger earned a total of eighteen ARIA Awards making them the second-most awarded band behind Silverchair. Ten Powderfinger albums and DVDs were certified multiple-platinum status, with Odyssey Number Five – their most successful album – achieving eight times platinum certification for shipment of over 560,000 units. After the release of their first DVD, These Days: Live in Concert (September 2004), and a compilation album, Fingerprints: The Best of Powderfinger, 1994–2000 (November 2004), the group announced a hiatus in 2005. The June 2007 announcement of a two-month-long nationwide tour with Silverchair, Across the Great Divide Tour, followed the release of Dream Days at the Hotel Existence. Powderfinger were involved in philanthropic causes. In 2005, they performed at a WaveAid concert in Sydney, to help raise funds for areas affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. Another performance at the Sydney Opera House in October 2007 raised funds for breast cancer victims and their families. One aim of their Across the Great Divide Tour was to promote the efforts of Reconciliation Australia, and awareness of the gap in life expectancy between Indigenous and non-Indigenous children. In April 2010 Powderfinger announced that they would be breaking up after their Sunsets Farewell Tour, declaring it would be their last ever as they had musically said everything they wanted to say. On 13 November 2010, they played their last concert, signifying their disbandment. In November the following year, Dino Scatena, a rock music journalist, and the band, published a biography, Footprints: the inside story of Australia's best loved band. (en)

Depuis, ils ont enregistré plusieurs succès qui leur ont rapporté un total de quinze ARIA Awards.

Odyssey Number Five, le plus connu des albums de Powderfinger à ce jour, a été nommé disque de platine huit fois, et a gagné des ARIA Awards dans cinq catégories différentes. Après la sortie de leur premier DVD, These Days: Live in Concert, et d'une compilation, Powderfinger annonce une pause en 2005. L'annonce de leur tournée australienne avec Silverchair intitulée Across the Great Divide Tour, suit la sortie de leur sixième album studio, Dream Days at the Hotel Existence, en juin 2007. Durant ses seize années de carrière, les membres de Powderfinger ont été activement impliqués dans des activités philanthropiques. En 2005, ils ont joué au concert WaveAid à Sydney, pour aider à récolter des fonds pour les victimes des zones affectées par le tremblement de terre du 26 décembre 2004. Un autre concert à l'Opéra de Sydney a été organisé pour financer les victimes du cancer du sein et leur familles. Le but de leur récente tournée Across the Great Divide est de promouvoir les efforts de la fondation Reconciliation Australia et de mettre en évidence la différence de dix-sept ans d'espérance de vie entre les enfants aborigènes et les autres.

  • With the completion of our last album, Golden Rule, we feel that we have said all that we want to say as a musical group. We firmly believe that it is our most complete and satisfying album and can't think of a better way to farewell our fans than with music that we all believe in and also with, hopefully, our best tour to date.
