The Australian band, who are best known for hit song 'Khe Sanh', will pay tribute to their old drummer Steve Prestwich on No Plans after he passed away from a brain tumour in January last year.
Cold Chisel frontman Jimmy Barnes told the Herald Sun: "The last two years have reminded all of us that sometimes life deals up things you don't expect.
"You can't take anything or anyone for granted. Sometimes it's best to have no plans.''

The record will feature 13 songs, including 'I Got Things to Do', a track written by Prestwich before his death. Other songs include 'Everybody', 'All for You' and 'Dead and Laid to Rest'.
Prestwich performed on several tracks on the album, which was recorded between 2010 and 2011.
No Plans is scheduled for release on April 6, while their single 'Everybody' will be out later this month. The band are launching the album with a one-off show at Melbourne's Festival Hall on April 12.
