Powderfinger Snub Reunion
Powderfinger have hit back at rumours they’re reuniting to help raise money for the Queensland flood victims.
Despite pressure from Independent State MP Rob Messenger - who publicly appealed for the group to hold a benefit concert – the Aussie rockers will NOT be dusting off their beloved guitars and returning to the stage.
An official statement on the band’s website read,
“There have been some suggestions ... for us to reform and play a charity concert, and while flattering, we would like to politely decline.
"We played together for the last time in November and intend to keep it that way.”
However, the five-piece, who called it quits after 21 years in the music biz, are doing their bit towards the devastation Down Under, by releasing a new track.
They added online, “We do, however, want to help so we are currently planning to release a never-before-heard Powderfinger song with all proceeds going towards raising the hopes and finances of those recovering from the disaster by donation to The Premier's Flood Relief Appeal.
"Stay tuned for more details.''
