The Chills release their first full-length album in nearly two decades. 'Silver Bullets' hails the return of one of New Zealand's most respected exports; Bursting with chiming Dunedin-pop anthems, melodic rock and Phillipps' playful punk-rock tendencies, the thrilling new album brings them to the next chapter.
Recorded at Albany Street Studios in Dunedin (NZ) the album instantly reaffirms Phillipps' aptitude for writing intelligent and timeless pop songs delivered with conviction. Whether tackling issues on the economy, fighting with 'Silver Bullets' or the observant nature of Southern Lights on 'Aurora Corona', The Chills complex pop resonates in a cacophony of dark-edged songs. Their underlying melancholy remains and is offset by their signature catchy melodies bringing a haunting depth to their idiosyncratic sound.

"Capable of rousing rock and breathtaking beauty." - Pitchfork
"The group's loose and energetic and its signature pop-rock is still potent and the melodies as catchy as ever." - Pop Matters
