Check out the video for 'The Clap' now.

The Chats are set to release their debut album.

Titled ‘High Risk Behaviour’, it’s set to arrive on 27th March on their own label, Bargain Bin Records. It’s named after the multitude of tickets issued by the police to drummer Matt Boggis, which list his “high risk behaviour” while skating “in places he shouldn’t”.

The rebel!

Singer and bassist Eamon Sandwith explains he didn’t “want to make the songs boring, so I just keep them short and sweet”.

“We try not to think about it or complicate it too much. You don’t want to force it or the song’s going to turn out crap,” he said. “Some of the songs were first-take and we were like, ‘That’s good, whatever.’ We’re really not perfectionists.”

It comes alongside a Matt Weston-directed video for ‘The Clap’, which features guitarist Josh Price seeking treatment for… yeah… you’ve got it. Well, not actually got it. Hopefully. No need to pry.

Anyway. Check it out below.
