Cold Chisel have released a striking video from their ninth studio album, Blood Moon.
Filmed during the band’s recent tour ‘Killing Time’ features stunning imagery from the recent bushfire disaster.
It was sheer luck that the show even went ahead.
Four days earlier, and just hours before it was due to kick off, Chisel’s show in Rutherglen, west of Albury-Wodonga, had to be cancelled due to thick smoke haze caused by bushfires:
In case you were wondering why A Day on the Green’s Cold Chisel show was cancelled tonight this is the venue in Rutherglen this morning – EPA Victoria say there’s no sign of the smoke clearing and wind conditions today will make it worse @theheraldsun @ADayOnTheGreen pic.twitter.com/NX8onaByD3

…so there were no guarantees that this gig, held near Geelong, was going to get the green light.
Because it did, we now have this video of the new track –
Blood Moon is the first Cold Chisel album to be released on cassette since 1992’s ‘Teenage Love’ rarities compilation.
