Les Chats have announced an extensive national tour of 29 dates which will stop at a large number of metropolitan and regional stations from September to the end of November.
The sprawling trek has been dubbed their “Suburban Excursion” tour and will hit places like Noosaville, Toowoomba, South Morang, Mulgrave, Parafield Gardens, Dunsborough, Geraldton, Coogee, Cairns and Townsville, to name a few.
The pub-punk trio will be joined for the majority of the tour dates by noise-rockers from Melbourne Batpiss. Tickets are on sale now via the official website of the group.
The new dates come after The Chats were forced to postpone a handful of previously postponed dates recently in support of their debut album, “High Risk Behavior” from last year. The group has since postponed its dates in Sydney and Brisbane to the end of July and August.
The group has yet to release any new music this year, with their latest single being “AC / DC CD” from 2020. Last month it was announced that the group would appear on the upcoming star-studded compilation “The Metallica Blacklist”, joining 52 other artists to cover songs from the eponymous 1991 Metal Icons album (aka “The Black Album”). .
