Viral sensation The Chats have shared the latest single and video about spending the arvo at your sticky carpet local after a long day on the tools, nursing a coldie while waiting for the bistro to open because you’re hanging for a chicken schnitty with chips. Y’know. Relatable stuff. Watch the video for Pub Feed via YouTube below.
Formed in 2016 in their mate’s bong shed, The Chats quickly came up with a set of catchy pub punk anthems. Smoko came first, and mayhem followed. Now reaching over 6 million views, the tune lead to a whirlwind touring schedule of 2018.
First, a mammoth tour of over 40 dates with drunken uncles and godfathers of grunge, the Cosmic Psychos, followed not long after with a personal request by Josh Homme to open for the Queens of the Stoneage across Australia. According to Homme, he was sent the bands video by Dave Grohl, and watched it a ton of times with Iggy Pop.
The Chats announced their debut tour of the UK in October, which much to the bands shock, all sold out in a day. Agents scrambled to move all shows to larger venues, seeing the boys playing sold out shows in infamous rooms such as the Electric Ballroom in London, Academy 2 in Manchester and Institute 2 in Birmingham.
Not bad for a couple of 19 year olds who’ve never been outside of Australia before. With a ton of new material, and what feels like a couple of hundred bloody gigs now under their belt, the boys eyes are set heavily on world domination –as long as the beer is cold and the pies are warm.
