Silverchair will release the iTunes exclusive EP on Tuesday, December 18th entitled The Greatest View EP. The six track collection features the current single "The Greatest View" which was originally on Silverchair's 2003 release Diorama and will be stripped onto 2008 editions of Young Modern plus a remix of "Straight Lines" by
The Presets, Two previously unreleased Young Modern B-Sides and two videos. Full track listing is below.

"The Greatest View" is currently receiving major airplay across the country including such stations as Q101/Chicago, 99X/Atlanta, WFNX/Boston, KDGE/Dallas, Sirius, XM and Music Choice.

A little known fact is that Silverchair lead singer/guitar player and The Presets leader Julian Hamilton are great friends thanks to their Australian roots and similar musical interests. Julian actually co-wrote the smash hit "Straight Lines" along with three other tracks off Young Modern and has been a touring member of Silverchair when he has the time. Julian and Kim from the Presets were also touring members of the Dissociatives - Daniel's 'other band' with Paul Mac. Closing the circle, Daniel contributed guitar work for past Presets records as well as helping write some tunes with them so it's a family affair. The Presets have a new album set for early '08 release.

Silverchair is on the verge of finishing up the second leg of their sold out US tour before heading back to Australia for the holidays. They will headline that country's Big Day Out tour in January alongside Rage Against The Machine, Bjork and Arcade Fire. Expect to see the band back in the US in early 2008.

The Greatest View EP Track Listing:
1. The Greatest View (Originally from "Diorama")
2. Straight Lines {The Presets Remix}
3. We're Not Lonely...BUT We Miss You (B-Side)
4. Barbarella (B-Side)
5. If You Keep Losing Sleep VIDEO
6. The Greatest View - Live From Carriageworks, Sydney VIDEO

Colourful heavy rockers TWISTED SISTER have been forced to scrap a concert in California due to poor ticket sales.

The gig at the Bren Events Center in Irvine was planned by two entrepreneurial fans who took out a $100,000 (GBP50,000) bank loan to fund the 14 December (07) show. reports the Newport Beach, California couple stood to earn a tidy fortune for local charities and cover their loan if the show was a sell-out, but now it looks as if the pair will be left out of pocket after only 600 of the 4,300 tickets sold

A well known Cowboy is getting Hollywoodfied...A Dallas Cowboy that is.

QB Tony Romo and poptart Jessica Simpson have been linked together the past few weeks.

Club goers witnessed the saliva swapping couple at Jess's BFF/X Assistant's Bday Bash at LA's nightclub Teddy over the weekend. Proving the rumors are true.

So how did this star QB and blond dizz meet? Joe Simpson Jessica's father of COURSE!

The church going father that pimps out his daughters supposedly gave Romo his daughters number after Romo called Joe asking if it would be ok if he could take Jess out for a drink while she was in Dallas recording her country album...awww what a gentlemen.

Joe of course gave out the digits after supposedly clearing it with Jess making sure she had time between lip plumping sessions and now they are living Hollywood relationship bliss forrrrrrr 8 weeks tops.

Kristi Lee's Dirrty Mouth - Daddy Simpson has pimped again!
