The Chills have announced a new album. On May 14, the legendary New Zealand band will release their seventh studio album, Scatterbrain, via Fire Records. It follows the band’s 2018 release Snow Bound. The first single they’ve shared is “Monolith,” and you can check it out below.
“There are hard but important truths in our history,” says the band’s Martin Phillipps in a press release. “I know that it’s often said that you learn from those lessons or you’ll end up repeating the mistakes. So one should respect and consider the ancient ways. You belittle them at your peril.”
