Silverchair drummer Ben Gillies has unveiled his new project, Bento, which has been keeping him busy while Silverchair remain on indefinite hiatus.
Bento will release the album Diamond Days on October 26.
"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," Gillies said in a statement. "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."
The album features a variety of Gillies' musician pals, and it was produced by Gillies along with Eric J. Dubowski.
