Grimy, pugnacious and playful, Amyl and The Sniffers is an Australian punk four-piece that channels AC/DC, Dolly Parton and Die Antwoord into an earth-shaking live show. Already legendary in their home country, The Sniffers made their international debut in May 2018, playing to packed houses at The Great Escape Festival and two sold-out headline shows in London before joining King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard on a 22-date tour of the USA.
“Led by human firework Amy Taylor, Melbourne’s magnificent garage crew Amyl and the Sniffers play the single most exhilarating rock’n’roll show I’ve seen in years.” The Guardian.
Amyl and The Sniffers was founded by Amy Taylor (vocals), Bryce Wilson (drums) and Declan Martens (guitar) in their Melbourne sharehouse in 2016, with Gus Romer (bass) coming on board later to complete the line-up. The Sniffers formed the band, wrote a handful of tunes and released their debut EP, Giddy Up, all in a span of twelve hours – a burst of energy that has not stopped, that is threatening to take over the world.
Amyl and the Sniffers inked a deal with Flightless Records in early 2018, and went into Flightless HQ to record with King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard’s Joey Walker. The band’s debut album is due out later this year.
