Aussie punks THE CHATS have unveiled a new video ahead of their appearance at the Reading and Leeds festivals next month.

'Identity Theft' is the band's third single, following on from the internet smash 'Smoko' from 2018 and 'Pub Feed' from earlier this year. The Queensland trio began their recording career with two EPs - The Chats and Get This In Ya!! - in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

'Identity Theft' "…is about when you buy drugs on the internet and a hacker steals your credit card number and your identity," explains front man Eamon Sandwith.

'Identity Theft' is available now through Bargain Bin records on Spotfiy and all the usual platforms.
