Description

Amyl and the Sniffers are a grimy pub rock band from Melbourne, Australia. Amy Taylor (vocals), Bryce Wilson (drums) and Declan Martens (guitar) are former housemates who formed the band, wrote a handful of tunes and released their debut EP, Giddy Up, all in a span of twelve hours. Completing their line up with Gus Romer on bass, Amyl and the Sniffers took their cues from a diverse mix of genres including pub rock, Aussie punk and country. They set out to have as much fun as possible and scared up a whole lot of fans along the way.

Amyl and the Sniffers’ second EP, Big Attractions, was released in February 2017, kicking off a stellar year. Growing buzz made them a hot tip on the Australian festival circuit including mind-blowing sets at Bigsound, Meredith Music Festival, Cherry Rock and Boogie, capping things off with a sold-out NYE show.

2018 started with a bang, with the band invited to support Foo Fighters on a leg of their Australian tour. Australian publication The Music named Amyl and the Sniffers a ‘Band to Watch in 2018’ and put them on the cover. Both PBS FM and Triple R FM made the record ‘Album of the Week’ and the band sold out multiple Australian headline shows.

Meanwhile, the Amyl buzz began to travel abroad. Limited edition vinyl copies of Giddy Up/Big Attractions flew off the shelves, pushing Amyl and the Sniffers into the Top 40 on the UK Vinyl Charts. The band made their international debut at The Great Escape festival in May, followed by sold out headline shows in London, before flying out to the Los Angeles to join King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard on a 20-date tour of the United States.

Amyl and the Sniffers debut album is due out in early 2019.
