'Silver Bullets' will see release at the end of the week

New Zealand-bred jangle-pop icons The Chills have announced the imminent release of Silver Bullets, their first new studio full-length in nearly 20 years, ahead of this coming January's eagerly awaited whirlwind east-coast Australian tour.

The new release will be out in the world sooner than you probably think, too, with the band revealing that they'll be unveiling the long-awaited Silver Bullets this Friday, 30 October, via Fire Records and with a local release through Rocket Distribution. The band recorded the album at Dunedin's esteemed Albany Street Studios, with the finished product canvassing topics from the economy to the Southern Lights as well as boasting a new re-recording of Molten Gold.

The album's release precedes the band's two-date tour of the east coast, with stops planned at the Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent for next year's Sydney Festival on Wednesday 13 January, heading down to Max Watt's House Of Music, in Melbourne, on Friday 15 January.
