An Australian punk group will tour in Bristol this weekend.

The Chats will perform at the O2 Academy, in Frogmore Street, tomorrow (Friday) at 6.30pm.

The trio have enjoyed a rapid rise to fame after forming in 2016 and scored a viral hit with Smoko one year later, which has surpassed eight million views.

The Queensland three piece have been touring America to sold-out crowds, following their first appearance at the Reading and Leeds Festival in August.

Drawing influence from the same Australian rock scene that spawned AC/DC and The Saints, the rockers have also announced they will be closing 2019 with a full UK tour in December, culminating in a headline show at The Forum, London.

The Chats' latest single, Identity Theft, was released in July.

Tickets, priced £17.65, are available at or on 01179 279227.
