The Chats will be hitting the road for a string of dates around Australia in February 2024. They’re bringing their mates Mean Jeans, The Prize, The Unknowns, Boondall Boys and Ghoulies along for the Aussie pub rock extravaganza.
The tour is an extension of the work The Chats have been doing with their self-managed label, Bargain Bin Records. Launched in 2019, the label has put out records by The Chats, The Unknowns, Dennis Cometti and King Stingray.
The Chats – ‘Smoko’
The Chats are promising that the tour will come with exclusive vinyl pressing, with more details on that to be announced.
The Chats have had a busy few years. Capitalising on the viral success of their song ‘Smoko’, which found them international recognition, they’ve toured locally and overseas and supported bands as diverse as Ty Segall and Guns N’ Roses, and will join Foo Fighters on their upcoming arena tour.
Mean Jeans, one of the primary support acts on The Chats’ forthcoming tour, are a drawcard in themselves. Formed in Portland back in 2007, they make scuzzball rock of the psychedelic variety.
