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.

Now the full live band (including Martin Phillipps (Guitar/Vox), James Dickson (Bass/Backing Vocals), Todd Knudson (Drums/Backing Vocals), Erica Stichbury (Violin/Backing Vocals) and Oli Wilson (Keyboards/Backing Vocals), will be taking to UK/EU stages for the first time in two years.
