There’s nothing more Australian than hot sun, warm waves and Cold Chisel. So with their first ever outdoor summer tour going on sale at 11am local time tomorrow, the legendary rock outfit have just announced details of a new single and album which will be released upfront of the dates.

Fittingly, the lead track is called Getting The Band Back Together. It was written by the band’s main songwriter, Don Walker and, in the mode of Cold Chisel classics like Bow River and Saturday Night, the song sees Ian Moss and Jimmy Barnes trading lead vocal lines. Getting The Band Back Together is released on Thursday, 31 October and will be followed before Christmas by a new album which, like the tour, is called Blood Moon

The recordings were all created in Sydney in August and September this year with the band’s long-time producer Kevin Shirley

“The album covers a lot of ground lyrically and musically”, reveals Don Walker“’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”.

The band have also announced that due to a strong reaction to the first show announced for A Day on the Green at Queensland’s Sirromet Wines, a 2nd and final show has been added on Sunday, 9 February 2020.
Foodbank will be supported in various ways throughout the Blood Moon Tour 2020 including by way of special auction items and fundraising collections at each venue on the tour.  For all details on the Blood Moon Tour 2020 please see below. 

Fans are reminded to only buy tickets by following the ticket links listed below. People who choose to ignore this clear advice and who instead use search engines like Google to find tickets typically get steered to unofficial reselling sites like Viagogo that often lead to rip offs.
