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, heaving 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.
Released in May 2019, Amyl and The Sniffers’ self-titled debut album earned the band a spot on the BBC1 playlist, plus rave reviews around the world. At home, the band secured an ARIA for Best Rock Album, scored Album of The Week on Double J, 3RRR and FBi radio, hit the number 1 spot on the Australian vinyl chart, and landed a place on the Australian Music Prize shortlist. Internationally, the band became media darlings, with features appearing in publications as diverse as Thrasher, MOJO and The Guardian to Vogue, Vice and Flaunt.
From high fashion to dirty punk zines, heaving back rooms to major festival stages, the band continues to explode boundaries, giving no fucks and winning new fans every time they play.
