Who’s ready for our first major tour announcement of 2020?!? Today we are beyond excited to add Australian punks The Chats to Ones To Watch family as we’ll be presenting their upcoming US headliner along with our sister site The Noise.
In support of their recently announced debut album High Risk Behaviour, set for release March 27 via Bargain Bin Records, the Aussie noisemakers will be hitting the road on the Ones To Watch and The Noise–presented “High Risk Behaviour” US tour with Mean Jeans and THICK.
Along with today’s exciting tour news, The Chats have also debuted their whimsical lead single “The Clap,” which is all about, well, the clap.
“We don’t make songs for people to look at in a fucking emotional or intellectual way,” says vocalist/bassist Eamon Sandwith. “We just make songs for people to jump around and have fun to.” Sandwith added, “I just want people to have a good time. I want them to dance around and have a beer and enjoy it.”
With that said, crack a beer and enjoy “The Clap,” a sentence we never thought we would actually type. Afterward, make sure to grab tickets to see The Chats out on tour. Tickets will be available here on Friday, January 24 at 10am local time.
