The Chills add more UK shows & return to UK,  play KOKO June 8th 
Following the success of ‘Silver Bullets’, their first album in nearly 2 decades, Dunedin legends The Chills return to the UK this Spring to perform at London’s premier live music venue: KOKO! This will be the first time fans can hear the new Chills album played live in the UK, plus a few old favourites for good measure.
The band are also set to play Brighton’s West Hill Hall, Leeds Belgrave Music Hall, Cardiff’s Globe with more TBC! Full dates below.
