COLD CHISEL Deliver 'The Perfect Crime'

Friday, October 2, 2015
It's a huge day of announcements for Cold Chisel fans.
The iconic rock band have revealed the title and release date of a brand new studio album, unveiled a handful of extra shows on their highly-anticipated One Night Stand tour and on top of all that they are excited to announce that they have coaxed Grinspoon out of an indefinite hiatus to be their special guests on 7 shows.
Cold Chisel's new album will be called The Perfect Crime and will hit stores on Friday, 2 October coinciding with the first gig on their One Night Stand tour at the Deni Ute Muster. Featuring songs drawn from recording sessions across 2014 and 2015, the album will be kick-started by the single Lost, which will be released to radio and TV tomorrow, Friday, 28 August. Pre-orders for the album will also be available at all music retailers from tomorrow morning.
The newly announced extra shows on the One Night Stand tour will happen in Geraldton (WA), Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. The show at Adelaide's Entertainment Centre on Tuesday, 17 November is in direct reaction to the huge outcry from their hometown fans demanding a show on the national tour. Cold Chisel played a one-off show at the Clipsal 500 in March to over 35,000 people and thought that they had exhausted demand. But their fans let them know, in no uncertain terms, that this wasn't the case. The show at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on Thursday November 19 comes as Cold Chisel's headline show at Hanging Rock, Vic is about to sell out. The band has also announced that on Tuesday, 15 December they will play a third and final show at Sydney's Qantas Credit Union Arena to mark the closure of this iconic rock & roll venue. This additional Sydney date is very significant for Cold Chisel fans – it marks the anniversary of the final show of the band’s famous Last Stand tour, which ended at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on 15 December 1983.
Cold Chisel are excited to announce that they have managed to persuade the much-loved Grinspoon out of hiatus to be the band's special guests on 7 shows. Grinspoon have been added to the already-announced One Night Stand shows at 1300SMILES Stadium in Townsville on Saturday, 7 November and at the Darwin Amphitheatre on Tuesday, 10 November and they will join Cold Chisel in Adelaide, Melbourne and on all 3 shows at the Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney. This return of Grinspoon will be exclusive to these shows with Cold Chisel.
"We've done a couple of really memorable shows with Grinspoon," says Cold Chisel frontman Jimmy Barnes. "They played with us on our huge return show at Homebush Stadium in 2009 and they joined us for one show on the Light The Nitro tour in 2011 and that just happened to be the biggest show of the tour. They're a great band and a really good fit with Cold Chisel."
“To say we are excited to be supporting Cold Chisel is an understatement,” says Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson. “The show we played on the Light The Nitro tour was one of the most memorable shows I have ever played in my life! Arm in arm, all of us - Pat, Joe, Kris & I. Singing at the top of our lungs to 'Flame Trees'. Grinspoon have NEVER been arm in arm before. It was a moment. I think I may have even fallen into a bush in my excitement.
“I honestly didn’t think Grinspoon would be playing together again, so to get this opportunity by such a legendary act is humbling and completely out of the box insanely totally crazy fun. Now, what the hell am I going to wear?”
2015 is shaping up to be one the biggest and best in Cold Chisel's unparalleled four-decade career. "The Perfect Crime is probably the most rock & roll album that we’ve ever done," says Cold Chisel's primary songwriter Don Walker. "Now we can't wait to get out and play some of these songs on the One Night Stand tour."

First Single – Lost - at media on Friday, 28 August
Album available for pre-order from Friday, 28 August

It’s the album of his career – literally.
To celebrate 30 years as a solo artist, Jimmy Barnes is revisiting some of his biggest hits, collaborating with some of his favourite artists; Keith Urban, The Living End, John Farnham, Bernard Fanning, Shihad, Tina Arena, Baby Animals and Jon Stevens plus more.
“I wanted to do something special for the 30th anniversary,” Jimmy explains. “There was talk of a tribute album, but that idea would have taken me out of the picture. So then I thought of a better idea – I’ll get all my favourite acts and sing with them!”
Jimmy re-visits ‘Good Times’ with Keith Urban, ‘I’d Die To Be With You Tonight’ with Diesel, and ‘Stand Up’ with his daughter Mahalia.
The album also includes brand new recordings of ‘Working Class Man’, which sees Jimmy reunited with the song’s writer, Journey’s Jonathan Cain, as well as ‘Ride The Night Away’, featuring the song’s co-writer Little Steven Van Zandt from the E Street Band.
“We’ve actually kicked some new life into the songs,” Jimmy says. “I think when people hear the record, they will get the sense that these are very modern takes on these songs. They sound fresh and they sound new and they sound alive.”
The first single is a blistering version of ‘Lay Down Your Guns’, featuring The Living End. “We got into the studio and within four bars of playing the song I knew it was the right marriage of song and artist,” Jimmy says. “It was a rollercoaster from there – I just got on and enjoyed the ride. It was fantastic.”
Chris Cheney from The Living End recalls “We’ve recorded with Jimmy twice now and he’s really great to work with. No messing around, just get in and get it done! ‘Lay Down Your Guns’ was the first song I thought of when Jimmy asked up to be part of this project. I can remember going to see him at Rod Laver Arena in 1990 and this song kicked ass.  It’s way above my range as a singer but he still sings it in the original key. He just gets in there and nails it!”
The new recordings are brilliantly complemented by original versions selected from across 30 years of Jimmy Barnes hits.    Appropriately the 30/30 album will be available almost 30 years to the day from the release of Jimmy’s chart-topping debut solo album Bodyswerve in September 1984.

“Thirty years ago, I’d just left Cold Chisel,” Jimmy recalls. “It was a frightening prospect going out on my own. Luckily for me, I had a great ally, partner and sounding board in Michael Gudinski.”
Fast-forward 30 years and Jimmy is still recording for Liberation, part of Michael Gudinski’s Mushroom Group.

Jimmy Barnes has released 14 studio albums in the past 30 years.  Nine of those albums have reached number one – more than any other Australian artist.
Produced by Kevin Shirley (Cold Chisel, Silverchair, Aerosmith), the 30/30 album not only celebrates the phenomenal career to date of one of Australia’s foremost musicians but also illustrates Jimmy’s continuing relevance within the contemporary Australian music scene, both as a recording and a touring artist.

In celebration of his 30th Anniversary Jimmy Barnes will be embarking on a tour later this year, playing a select number of A Day On The Green wineries nationally, with full details to be announced soon.
The tracklisting includes:
1. Going Down Alone, Journey
2. Good Times, Keith Urban
3. I’d Die To Be With You Tonight, Diesel
4. Lay Down Your Guns, The Living End
5. Ride The Night Away, Little Steven (Van Zandt)
6. Stand Up, Mahalia Barnes and the Soul Mates
7. Time Will Tell, Baby Animals
8. Working Class Man, Jonathan Cain (Journey)
9. Still On Your Side, Bernard Fanning
10. I’d Rather Be Blind, Jon Stevens
11. When Your Love Is Gone, John Farnham
12. Love & Hate, Shihad
13. The Other Kind, Trot Cassar-Daley
14. Walk On, David Campbell
15. Stone Cold, Tina Arena
From jimmybarnes.com:
Hi all,

To celebrate 30 years as a solo artist, I’m releasing an album revisiting some of my biggest hits and collaborating with a whole swag of my favourite artists. I wanted to do something special for the 30th Anniversary and there was talk of a tribute album, but that would have taken me out of the picture. So I’ve thought of a better idea - I’ll get all my favourite acts and sing with them.
After 30 years and 14 studio albums I wanted to do something special while reflecting on the moments, songs and other artists who have shared the journey.
This album will see the likes of Keith Urban, The Living End, John Farnham, Bernard Fanning, Shihad, Tina Arena, Baby Animals, Jon Stevens, David Campbell, Mahalia Barnes sharing the mic with me and more to be announced in time.
You might have noticed some pictures of the studio sessions on my Facebook and Twitter page over the past six months. It’s been tough trying to keep the project a secret during this time, so it’s wonderful to be able to announce it this morning.
The album will be on shelves August 29 through Liberation, appropriately almost 30 years to the day from the release of my debut solo album Bodyswerve in September 1984.

In celebration of my 30th Anniversary I’ll be embarking on a tour later this year, playing a select number of A Day On The Green wineries nationally, with full details to be announced soon. 
I’ve got a few more exciting things up my sleeve for you all to be announced in due course, so stay tuned.
