It's been a massive year for Cold Chisel and it's just getting bigger.

The Aussie rock legends brand new album, Blood Moon has debuted at #1 on the ARIA charts this week, the band's first #1 since 1998.

The band's 9th studio album is proof the band haven't lost their rock'n'roll, joining their other Aussie classics, Circus Animals and Swingshift that have seen the band topping the charts in the 80s.

Taking time out of rehearsals, the band reflect on the win for the band:
“We are really excited by Blood Moon hitting # 1 on the ARIA chart – an incredible 21 years after our last one,” says frontman Jimmy Barnes. “We never take anything for granted, so huge thanks to our loyal army of fans who have helped make this happen. We love Blood Moon– it’s our best collection of songs since the ‘80s.”

Fans can hear tracks from the new album including the hit single 'Getting The Band Back Together' on the Blood Moon tour- the biggest outdoor tour the band have ever done, this summer.
