Viral Sensation The Chats Release New Single & Video
The latest single from the Sunshine Coast's biggest export since The Crocodile Hunter (RIP) is an is an ode to spending the arvo at your sticky carpet local after a long day on the tools, nursing a coldie while waiting for the bistro to open because you're hanging for a chicken schnitty with chips. Y'know. Relatable stuff. Perfect for your weekend.
Forming in 2016 in their mates bong shed, The Chats quickly came up with a set of catchy pub punk anthems. 'Smoko' came first, and mayhem followed.
Now reaching over 6 million views, the tune has lead to a whirlwind touring schedule of 2018.
First, a mammoth tour of over 40 dates with drunken uncles and godfathers of grunge, the Cosmic Psychos, followed not long after with a personal request by Josh Homme to open for the Queens of the Stoneage across Australia. According to Homme, he was sent the bands video from Dave Grohl, and watched it a ton of times with Iggy Pop.
Life is strange.
The Chats announced their debut tour in the motherland of the UK in October, which much to the bands shock, all sold out in a day. Agents scrambled to move all shows to larger venues, seeing the boys playing sold out shows in infamous rooms such as the Electric Ballroom in London, Academy 2 in Manchester and Institute 2 in Birmingham.
Not bad for a couple of 19 year olds who've never been outside of Australia before. With a ton of new material, and what feels like a couple of hundred bloody gigs now under their belt, the boys eyes are set heavily on world domination -as long as the beer is cold and the pies are warm.
