The Chats Share Video "The Clap," Announce Album

Venereal diseases are no joking matter unless you’re Australia’s The Chats, who share the video for the single “The Clap.” A straight-forward punked-up jam, alluding to a late ’70s/ early ’80s British explosion in style and delivery.

The band also announce its debut album, High Risk Behaviour, out March 27th on Bargain Bin Records/Cooking Vinyl Australia, and a North American tour. High Risk Behaviour buzzes like an out-of-control chainsaw, propelled by spoken-spit-sung vocals, their three-chords-is-one-too-many approach, and an exacting combination of youth, vigor, and drunkenness. It’s a perfect name for an album that does not f*ck around – one that’s over in 28 blistering, funny, sweaty, unforgettable minutes.
