“20yrs since this album!!!! Where does the time go,” guitarist Darren Middleton remarked on social media yesterday (7 July). “I still remember plugging in, cranking the volume and all of us recording the beds to these songs in the same studio room.

“Biggest of thanks to all of you who supported our band over the years and continue to do. We never would have imagined...”

Vulture Street, Poderfinger’s fifth album, gained the band the Best Rock Album award at the 2003 ARIA Awards and spent 47 weeks on the ARIA Charts after peaking at #1. They won further ARIA Awards for Vulture Street, including Album Of The Year, Best Group and Best Cover Art for the artwork, which featured Czech supermodel Eva Herzigová.

Vulture Street was a return to our Rock n Roll roots, after months and months on the road performing to bigger crowds on bigger stages in bigger rooms all around the world, we were starting to feel the effects that this kind of touring had on the way we were performing,” the band wrote in a statement yesterday.

“So, in that spirit, it feels right to add some of that live energy to this anniversary release with the addition of recordings from the ‘Live On Vulture Street’ Tour. Recordings which have never been made available before on Vinyl - until now. We’ve even added a touch of Emerald to the package in honour of those 20 great years.”

Will Powderfinger reunite for a Vulture Street anniversary tour? We can only hope.

2018 marked the 20th anniversary of Powderfinger’s Internationalist, which the band honoured by sharing a deluxe edition of the album that boasted 35 tracks.

The success of Internationalist – the band’s third album – cemented their legacy, debuting at #1 in Australia before spending six weeks in the ARIA top ten and cleaning up at the ARIA Awards in 1999, taking out Album Of The Year, Best Rock Album, Best Cover Art and Single Of The Year.
