The Chats pay homage to AC/DC on new single

By On

In the name of the father, the son and the holy spirit of rock, Aussie legends The Chats have shared their new single ‘ACϟDC CD’, a tribute to the deities of the genre, AC/DC themselves. Our pub rock icons, who released their ARIA-nominated album High Risk Behaviour earlier this year, explained the track’s inspiration.

“When I was 10 years old my dad took me to the Sanity in Logan and I purchased my first CD with my own money, which was Back in Black by AC/DC”, frontman Eamon Sandwith shared. “I was utterly blown away at how hard this band could rock, and I played it in the car every day to and from primary school.”

In true Eamon style, he confirms that he does “still fucken love Acca Dacca so I wrote this song as a tribute to one of the world’s rocking-est bands.” Alongside the new single, The Chats have also shared a clip for ‘ACϟDC CD’, directed by Natalie Sims. It even features a cameo from Eamon’s nanna, taking the boys on a post-church joyride.

The Chats haven’t been pissing away the year, working hard away at their own label, Bargain Bin Records. One of their latest and greatest signings, King Stingray, recently dropped their new single ‘Hey Wanhaka‘. “I’m very much looking forward to seeing them grow as a band”, Eamon shared, “and I can’t wait till we can hit the road and do some shows together!”
