This Friday, The Chats’ rip-roaring, epic second album, unapologetically titled, GET FUCKED will be released on their own label, Bargain Bin Records, so today, the band have released the final track, titled Out On The Street, ahead of the full release on August 19th.
Watch the new video below featuring The Chats on the road smashing out their infectious, sing-along punk rock. The culmination of high-energy live footage was captured by Maclay Heriot who followed the band through their 2022 USA tour, with footage taken from Coachella, kicking footies in venue carparks, and a whole bunch of intense US shows.
The Chats have been touring throughout 2022 playing in front of huge crowds across many countries and today are proud to announce their 2023 UK tour dates with a headline show at Brixton’s 02 Academy in London - their largest show to date. Next year’s tour will also visit venues in Ireland, France, Belgium, Sweden, and Norway. See full dates below and pick up tickets on sale from 9 am this Friday, August 19th, from the band’s website.
This month, the trio played their frenetic live show at Splendour In The Grass Fest in North Byron Parklands on home soil, where they thrashed through Smoko in front of a packed stage - the tune that pushed them into the ears of millions of online listeners at warp speed. Watch the live performance video here.
Smoko was just the gateway drug for a life of Chats dependence. Rather like The White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’, it started routinely enough, as the lead track on The Chats’ second EP, ‘Get This In Ya!!’, but since October ’17, when singer/bassist Eamon posted an accompanying video – which cost them just $5, for the sauced-up sausage roll snarfed on camera – it’s accrued a staggering 16 million YouTube views and counting, as well as enthusiastic props and radio plays from Elton John, Michael Stipe, Nick Cave, Iggy Pop, Josh Homme and Dave Grohl along the way.
Fast forward through to 2022 and The Chats are about to release their much awaited second album, GET FUCKED - an incendiary, hyper-adrenalized blitz from punk heaven, showcasing an electrifying all-killer-no-filler 13 tracks which perfectly capture the band’s explosive energy.
