The Chats have announced their debut album.

Clocking in at just under 30 minutes, 'High Risk Behaviour' is set to arrive on March 27 via the rising Sunshine Coast punks' own label, Bargain Bin Records, and Cooking Vinyl Australia. Bassist and vocalist Eamon Sandwith said:

"I just want people to have a good time. I want them to dance around and have a beer and enjoy it. We don’t make songs for people to look at in a fucking emotional or intellectual way. We just make songs for people to jump around and have fun to."

Head below to view the record's artwork and tracklist, as well as the Matt Weston-directed, slightly NSFW video for the track The Clap, a wild punk-rock affair about exactly what you think it’s about. It follows 2019 singles Pub Feed and Identity Theft.

The trio return to the UK and Europe in October for an extensive run of shows, with tickets on general sale at 10am on January 24. Head below for a full list of dates.
