Nick Launay is the producer of silverchair's new album, tracks for which are currently being laid down in an Australian studio. Launay and the band co-produced the new version of Blind for The Cable Guy motion picture soundtrack at Megaphon Studios in Sydney. Launay also produced Automatic's What If... single for murmur.
Andy Wallace, who mixed Sepultura's Roots album, will mix silverchair's latest CD. Wallace worked on the Sepultura album with producer Ross Robinson, who also performed the same duties for KoRn.
silverchair's highly successful debut frogstomp was produced by Kevin "Caveman" Shirley. The change in producers to Launay could be seen as a move by the band to complement the heavier, darker sound they are trying to achieve with their latest songs.
