Amyl And The Sniffers At SXSW, Debut Album, 2019 Summer Tour Dates

Melbourne, Australia – Amyl and the Sniffers announced today that their debut album will be released on May 24th and that they will be at SXSW this month. Check out the first track from the album, “Monsoon Rock”, out now on ATO (North America), Rough Trade (UK/Europe) and Flightless Records (Australia & New Zealand).

The band said of the new track, “”Monsoon Rock” is just a song to rage to, it celebrates good gigs and live music. We wrote it around the time of Gizzfest 2017 when it was pissing down with rain but everybody still got into it – just muddier and wetter and real feral. We ran out of time to make a video and it’s always fun making funny shit. If you don’t have a sense of humor and can’t laugh, what’s the point of being alive?”

Amyl and the Sniffers are Amy Taylor (vocals), Gus Romer (bass) Bryce Wilson (drums) and Declan Martens. They formed in Melbourne, Australia in early 2016 and wrote, self-recorded and released their debut EP, Giddy Up, all in a span of twelve hours.

Their second EP, Big Attractions, was released in February 2017 then re-released as a 12” double EP with Giddy Up, through Homeless Records in Australia and Damaged Goods in the UK. The band made their international debut at The Great Escape festival in May followed by sold out shows in London, before flying out to the Los Angeles to join King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard on a 22-date tour of the United States. Return trips to both the UK and US followed later in the year, where the band played to packed houses and rave festival reviews.

Already signed to Flightless Records for Australia and New Zealand, the band capped off a monster year by signing with ATO Records for North America and Rough Trade Records for the rest of the world. They were also nominated as Best New Act at the Q Awards and won the $30,000 Levis Prize.

Amyl and The Sniffers will appear at SXSW this month prior to embarking on a headline West Coast tour in March including the Bootleg Theater in LA. After those dates they will head to the UK and Europe, and then come back to North America in July for another headline run (all dates below).
