In 2022, as their monumental record Soft Bomb approaches its 30th Anniversary, The Chills will be heading to the US for a North American tour that sees them performing a three decade career spanning set. It will also include music from their most recent album Scatterbrain which they’ll be touring in the US for the first time since its release.

A conceptual classic that embraces styles and genres, Soft Bomb is an eclectic slow cooked musical stew, rich and rewarding from the much-loved storytelling songwriter Martin Phillipps. It features contributions from giants of contemporary American music including Van Dyke Parks and ex dB’s Peter Holsapple as collaborators.
