The Chills 'Submarine Bells' + 'Soft Bomb' Vinyl Reissues Announced

The Chills 'Submarine Bells' + 'Soft Bomb' Vinyl Reissues Announced

Chris Cudby / Friday 4th December, 2020 2:32PM

Summer silly season stressing you out? Time to take a chill pill — or two — with Flying Nun Records' forthcoming vinyl reissues of The Chills' early '90s albums Submarine Bells and Soft Bomb. First released via US imprint Slash / Liberation, the story behind both artistically ambitious long-players was brought to light by Julia Parnell and Rob Curry's often eyebrow-raising documentary The Chills: The Triumph & Tragedy of Martin Phillipps. Both records come home back to the Flying Nun vinyl catalogue for the first time in nearly three decades — freshly remastered, pressed in NZ by Holiday Records and featuring such celebrated Phillipps-penned favourites as 'Heavenly Pop Hit', 'Part Past Part Fiction' and 'The Male Monster From The Id'. You can pre-order your own copies before they drop on 15th January via the fancy new-look Flying Nun website here, and catch Martin Phillipps with his current lineup of The Chills touring throughout the North Island in late December.
