Self-proclaimed Australian shed-rock band the Chats make rambunctious old-school punk peppered with their cheeky, irreverent sense of humor.
More interested in beer, smokes, and fast cars than the state of the world, the Chats follow in the tradition of Australian bands like the Cosmic Psychos, the Hard-Ons, and Dune Rats in cranking out raw, energetic punk with a smirking sense of fun and a regular-guy attitude.
The trio was first thrust into the spotlight when their song "Smoko" and its accompanying video went viral in 2017.
That same year, they issued their breakthrough Get This in Ya!! EP, and in 2020 they delivered their first album, High Risk Behaviour, which hit the Australian Top Ten and made them local stars.
While there was a major personnel change before they could cut their second LP, 2022's tatefully titled Get Fucked showed they were still rough, rowdy, and out for good times.
