Chilly Chisel Have introduced a brand new Album, And the primary Single Is Coming next Week


NewsWritten by Alex Gallagher on October 21, 2019

Aussie institution Cold Chisel have well and truly gotten the band back together.

Fresh from announcing a massive Blood Moon outdoors national tour for early next year, Barnesy and co. have revealed they’ll have a new album with the same name out by the end of 2019.

About Chisel
A chisel is a tool with a characteristically shaped cutting edge (such that wood chisels have lent part of their name to a particular grind) of blade on its end, for carving or cutting a hard material such as wood, stone, or metal by hand, struck with a mallet, or mechanical power. The handle and blade of some types of chisel are made of metal or of wood with a sharp edge in it.
Chiselling use involves forcing the blade into some material to cut it. The driving force may be applied by pushing by hand, or by using a mallet or hammer. In industrial use, a hydraulic ram or falling weight (‘trip hammer’) may be used to drive a chisel into the material.
A gouge (one type of chisel) serves to carve small pieces from the material, particularly in woodworking, woodturning and sculpture. Gouges most frequently produce concave surfaces. A gouge typically has a ‘U’-shaped cross-section.

About Announced
An announcement (ANN) is a Usenet, mailing list or e-mail message sent to notify subscribers that a software project has made a new release version. Newsgroup announcement recipients often have a name like “comp.somegroup.announce”. Mailing list announcement recipients often have a name like “toolname-announce”. In an announcement, the subject line commonly contains the abbreviated prefix ANN: or [ANN].
The contents of an announcement usually contain a title line which contains the tool name, version, release name, and date. Additional contents often fall into the following message sections:

About: a short paragraph summary of the tool’s purpose
Changes: a list of the highest impact changes since the last release (should be brief since the changelog comprises the definitive list)
Resources: links to project pages of interest, such as homepage, where to download, bug tracking system, etc.Some additional, optional fields might include “Highlights”, “Author(s)”, “License”, “Requirements”, and “Release History”.
Announcement messages are usually sent in plain text form.

Plus, we won’t have to wait too long to hear the first single – the appropriately titled ‘Getting the Band Back Together’ will be released next Thursday, 31st October. Written by the band’s main songwriter Don Walker, it sees Barnes and guitarist Ian Moss trading vocal lines with one another.

“The album covers a lot of ground lyrically and musically”, says Walker about Blood Moon.

“’Getting The Band Back Together’ seemed like the right sentiment to accompany the tour but the album itself has a lot of songs that are darker than that, and a few quieter ones too. It’s great to still be making new music and finding new ways to do it after all these years.”

Recorded in Sydney throughout August and September this year with the band’s long-time producer Kevin Shirley, it’ll be the first new record in around four years for the boys, after releasing eighth studio album The Perfect Crime back in 2015.

In other Chisel news, the band have expanded their Blood Moon national tour, adding an additional date at Sirromet Wines on Sunday, 9th February. Nab tickets here.
