A month before their tour was supposed to kick off, The Chats have once again announced that their Australian trek in support of their debut album, High Risk Behaviour, has been postponed.

Having initially announced their tour in early March (just weeks before the release of their debut album, and just days prior to COVID-19 restrictions taking place), the group had intended to perform shows around the country throughout August of this year. In early April, The Chats announced the inevitable, with their tour being pushed back until November and December instead.

However, just weeks before they were set to embark upon the rescheduled tour, the Sunshine Coast trio have once again pushed their tour back, with their new dates set to occur in May and June of 2021 instead.


“With the current events happening in the world it’s inevitable we have had to once again reschedule our Australian tour,” the group wrote on Facebook. “All tickets previously bought are still valid and we really appreciate all of those who are holding tickets.”

In addition to the announcement, the band also revealed their Sydney show will now take place at The Roundhouse instead of The Metro, with new tickets available. Meanwhile, the tour now includes a newly-announced date at the Uni Bar in Hobart.

The Chats released their debut album, High Risk Behaviour, in late March, following on from the viral success of singles such as “Smoko”, and a pair of independently-released EPs. The album peaked at number five on the ARIA charts and received almost universal acclaim.
