Bernard Fanning shows off his dyed chestnut locks but fails to match his coif to his grey moustache

Powderfinger’s Bernard Fanning shows off his dyed chestnut locks but fails to match his coif to his VERY grey moustache – as he reveals whether the band will ever reform

Powderfinger’s Bernard Fanning appeared on The Project on Tuesday night to discuss his new album. 

But all eyes were on the 51-year-old rocker’s hairdo, which spectacularly failed to match his moustache. 

While the singer was sporting a luscious chestnut-coloured coif, his facial hair graduated between dark grey and white.

It appears while the performer has spruced up his do with some dye, he hasn’t given his moustache the same treatment. 

While on the show, Bernard discussed the new Powderfinger album – Unreleased – and discussed whether the band may ever get back together.   

‘We don’t have any plans to do any live shows or anything like that,’ the My Happiness hitmaker confirmed.

‘We never say never, but it’s not really on the radar for us. We’re all really busy doing lots of other stuff.’

Despite releasing a new album of unheard tracks – their first since they split a decade ago – the singer insisted, ‘We are not an active band’. 

In September, the rockers turned down headlining the AFL Grand Finale in Brisbane.

The group declined promoter Michael Gudinski’s ‘generous’ offer to perform at the Gabba, despite being tipped to play the anticipated historic event.

In May, Bernard hinted there is some tension between the band members as they prepared to play their first concert in a decade on YouTube.

Speaking on the Today show, the frontman said the online reunion was the ‘best circumstance’ because it allowed the band members – Ian Haug, Jon Coghill, John Collins and Darren Middleton – to reunite in separate rooms.

‘We know that people have been asking us every time we do an interview, actually for the last 10 years, when [we’re] getting back together and we know there’s some enthusiasm for it.  

‘[But] possibly the best circumstances for the five of us to get together, is in five separate rooms,’ he added.
