Rising to fame through the release of their single Smoko – a song about smoking breaks that received millions of views in just a couple of days via Youtube – The Chats can lay claim to being Australia's premier pub-punk shed-rock band.
They’ve toured with the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, gaining celebrity fans including Alex Turner and Dave Grohl along the way. The band's no-nonsense attitude and knack for creating anthemic singalongs and earworm riffs has seen them sell out shows across the world.
Set to release their new album, Get Fucked, this August, their shows guarantee, chaos, noise, hilarity and fun.
