The story of The Chills and its frontman Martin Phillipps is almost ready for release, after premiering at the American film festival SWXS.
Local fans will have to wait until May to see The Chills: The Triumph & Tragedy of Martin Phillipps, a documentary which examines the startling highs and monstrous lows of Phillipps and his Dunedin rock band.
On Monday, the film’s maker released a trailer for the documentary. It also confirmed the film would be in cinemas on May 2, for New Zealand Music Month. A special screening was planned for the night before, in Dunedin.
