NEWS: The Chats release latest single ‘The Clap’ and announce debut album ‘High Risk Behaviour’

Aussie punk-rockers The Chats have shared their latest single, ‘The Clap’, fresh from their newly announced debut album, ‘High Risk Behaviour’.

A raucous and noisy affair, the track is traditional anthemic punk, admittedly filled to the brim with juvenile innuendo and references to various STI.

The accompanying video for the track only serves to emphasise the cheeky and almost surreal nature of song. With the visual nature of it being firmly in parody territory.

The release of the track follows an undoubtedly chaotic 2019 for the band. With sell out-shows in the UK and their native Australia, the band were even chosen to support punk-pioneer Iggy Pop on his Australian tour.

““I just want people to have a good time,” says vocalist and bass play Eamon Sandwith. “I want them to dance around and have a beer and enjoy it. We don’t make songs for people to look at in a fucking emotional or intellectual way. We just make songs for people to jump around and have fun to.”

‘High Risk Behaviour’ is set to be released on 27th March and has been likened to, “an out-of-control buzzsaw.”

The Chats have also announced an upcoming UK tour in October, with the dates available to view bellow.
