‘Freak Show’ is the second studio album by Australian alternative rock band Silverchair. Released in 1997, ‘Freak Show’ was produced by Nick Launay (The Birthday Party, Models, Midnight Oil). Frontman Daniel Johns described the album’s title by comparing the on-the-road life of Silverchair
to that of a traveling carnival. The album’s front cover image is an  Illustration of Grady Stiles, Jr., a sideshow performer afflicted with ectrodactyly. His stage name was ‘The Lobster Boy’. The illustration is courtesy of Circus World Museum, Baraboo, Wisconsin. Johns also stated that some of the lyrics were toned-down for release on Freak Show. Although, the majority of the songs found on the album still retain morbid and angst-fueled themes that include disease and suicide.
