The legendary Cold Chisel have just announced that they will release a new studio album on Friday October 2 - which is the day that they set out on their national One Night Stand tour. Titled The Perfect Crime and featuring songs drawn from recording sessions across 2014 and 2015, the album will be kick-started by the single 'Lost'.

With The Perfect Crime there's a real sense among the band that they might just have pulled off the most definitive musical statement in the band’s unparalleled four-decade career. The first half of the album is dominated by a set of pulsating, menacing rockers, at once distinctly Cold Chisel, and yet for the most part quite unlike anything they’ve previously committed to tape.

"It’s probably the most rock & roll album that we’ve done," say primary songwriter Don Walker. “It’s historically been one of the bugbears that everyone brings in ballads or mid-paced songs,” adds Don, “but our producer Kevin Shirley was relentlessly looking for stuff that was up-tempo." Lead singer Jimmy Barnes agrees: “We wanted to do a rock record and Kevin was pushing for that from day one.”

The second half of The Perfect Crime then pushes all kinds of boundaries, ranging across slow-motion Soul Train-style disco (yes, disco!),’50s Latino cabaret, smatterings of blues and jazz...and then, for the first time ever, strings (along with soulful female backing vocals) find their way onto a Cold Chisel song, on the album’s stone-cold classic lead-out single, “Lost.”

2015 will undoubtedly be the year of The Perfect Crime
