Gig & Concert News - The Chills announce a blistering array of supports

The Chills announce a blistering array of supports

31 March 2021 - 0 Comments

The Chills announce a blistering array of supports joining them for their nationwide Scatterbrain tour April / May 2021 including the likes of Purple Pilgrims, Luke Buda, Mousey, Asta Rangu, Bitter Defeat and Devils Elbow.

But in a glorious twist of fate, they have also roped in their old friends The Bats as very special guests for their Auckland Powerstation show on May 14th.

With Purple Pilgrims in support, it will make for a night of pure and joyous celebration of Flying Nun alumni, coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the iconic indie label which opened its doors in 1981.

The Chills and The Bats have only performed together once before, at the Dunedin Town Hall on the 8th of July 1990 on the Submarine Bells tour, alongside The 3Ds.

"The Chills are feeling honoured to be performing alongside The Bats for only the second time in our careers" - Martin Phillipps, The Chills

"1990?! About bloody time we celebrated with our seniors (the 40 year old Chills) and share the stage with them again! (We're only 38!)" - Paul Kean, The Bats

“It’s about artistic integrity, self- realisation, self-acceptance and a reflection on mortality.”The Guardian
