Description

Dave Grohl discovered them and sent them to Josh Homme, who had them open for QOTSA across their native Australia. Now The Chats come to The Byrd!

The Chats are three dropkick drongos from the Sunshine Coast of Australia, also the home of the Crocodile Hunter (RIP). Forming in 2016 in their mates bong shed, the boys quickly came up with a set of catchy pub punk anthems. ‘Smoko’ came first, and mayhem followed. Now reaching over 5.5 million views, the tune has 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 from Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters, and watched it a ton of times with Iggy Pop. Life is strange.

The Chats announced their debut tour in the motherland 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 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.
