The Chills & The Bats

  • Friday 14 May 2021

Having announced the release of their seventh studio album ScatterbrainThe Chills announce they will be playing at the Powerstation this May!

And in a glorious twist of fate, they have roped in their old friends The Bats as very special guests. 

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

Dunedin’s finest, The Chills release their seventh studio album ‘Scatterbrain’, a glorious self- examination of Martin Phillipps’ songwriting hot (ish) on the heels of the hugely successful ‘Snow Bound’ (2018) and the critically-acclaimed movie ‘The Chills: The Triumph And Tragedy Of Martin Phillipps’ a year later.

THIS SHOW IS LICENSED R18 ONLY. A valid photo ID will be required - any current passport, a current New Zealand driver's license, a HANZ 18+ card or Kiwi Access Card. - FOR MORE INFO ON AGE RESTRICTIONS CLICK HERE.
