The Chats only released their debut album High Risk Behaviour back in March of this year, but that hasn’t stopped them from following it up with a new single – ‘AC/DC CD’.
Clocking in at just over a minute and a half, the blistering new song is a heartfelt homage to one of the country’s most legendary acts. It’s also as tongue-in-cheek as you’d expect from the Sunshine Coast trio, who declare Acca Dacca “the second greatest band in history” – the Chats being the first.
It’s a big claim, but as the band’s Eamon Sandwith explains, it’s all love.
“When I was 10 years old my dad took me to the Sanity in Logan and I purchased my first CD with my own money, which was Back in Black by AC/DC,” Sandwith commented in a statement.
“I was utterly blown away at how hard this band could rock, and I played it in the car every day to and from primary school. I still fucken love Acca Dacca so I wrote this song as a tribute to one of the world’s rocking-est bands.”
‘AC/DC CD’ arrives alongside a Natalie Sims-directed video that sees the boys worshipping at the altar of rock, and features a cameo from Sandwith’s nanna herself, hooning around the streets of Melbourne. Check that out below.
