The Cover Story
Despite their name, The Chats are men of few words, letting their high-octane, scuzzed-up punk do the talking. On a sweltering summer’s day, we caught up with the Aussie beer lovers at their blistering K! Pit show to find a band resolutely not giving a shit, and loving it.
Scruffy Aussie punk lads The Chats return with more of the same simple genius and bar stool observations on electrifying second album…
Watch the video for The Chats’ new single I’ve Been Drunk In Every Pub In Brisbane, and see where you can catch them in stadiums with Guns N’ Roses later this year…
Turnstile, IDLES, Nova Twins, Knocked Loose, Bob Vylan and more descend on the Cotswolds for one of the UK’s most beloved fests…
The Chats will hit The K! Pit next week for an unhealthy dose of beer-stained shed rock – see you there!
