Punk animals Amyl and The Sniffers have risen up from the sticky carpets of Melbourne’s underground music scene to storm the world stage. Renowned for their chaotic, ball-tearing live show, Dec Martens (guitar), Bryce Wilson (drums) and Gus Romer (bass) smash through the hooks at breakneck pace while “human firework” Amy Taylor lights up the stage — an exhilarating ride that routinely leaves fans covered in blood, sweat and saliva.
Amyl and The Sniffers self-released two EPs before signing to King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizards’ Flightless Records label in Australia and joining the band on a 22-date tour of the USA. Shortly afterwards, Amyl and The Sniffers signed to ATO Records for North America and Rough Trade for the rest of the world — the first Australian band to sign an album deal with Rough Trade since The Go-Betweens.
The band generated a ton of hype at The Great Escape and played to packed houses at SXSW, topping the list of Rolling Stone’s best acts of the 2019 event, with sold-out tours soon following across the UK, America and Australia. Major festival appearances came next, including Primavera, Glastonbury, Roskilde and All Points East, plus an invitation to appear on the hallowed UK music TV show Later...with Jools Holland.
