It’s been nearly two decades since the great New Zealand jangle-pop band the Chills released their last full-length, 1996’s Sunburnt. They came back with a new song called “Molten Gold” in 2013, and now they’ve finally announced plans for a new album. It’s called Silver Bullets, they recorded it in their Dunedin hometown, and it’s coming this fall. The first single is the beautiful, assured “America Says Hello,” and you can hear it below.
Silver Bullets is out 10/30 on Fire Records.
