Amyl and the Sniffers

Amyl & the Sniffers – the Melbourne, Australia rock band fronted by powerhouse Amy Taylor – return stateside this weekend for their Fall U.S. tour.

To celebrate the start of the tour, Amyl & the Sniffers share an incredible live video today. Featuring three tracks performed live at The Forum in Melbourne, the video includes “Mutts,” “Capital” and “Choices.”

“I wanted this to be filmed so people could see what our live show was like during the ‘Comfort To Me’ touring period,” Amy Taylor says of the live video. “It had to be filmed by John Angus Stewart of PHC Films as he has been there filming since the beginning. He was in the studio with us shooting behind the scenes when the album was being recorded, he made all of our videos and shot our Live from Williamstown show, and finally these clips, shot at this iconic venue in our hometown. John’s energy parallels mine, so I’m really happy having him on stage with me. You get up close and personal on these.”

Amyl & The Sniffers’ sophomore album Comfort To Me is out now. Comfort To Me, which was co-produced by the band and Dan Luscombe, is the follow-up to Amyl & the Sniffers’ critically acclaimed 2019 self-titled debut album, which won Australia’s esteemed ARIA Award for Best Rock Album and saw the band tour their anarchic and ridiculously fun live show internationally for the past two years.

Amyl & The Sniffers

Amyl & the Sniffers, the Melbourne, Australia rock band fronted by Amy Taylor, released their sophomore album Comfort To Me a few weeks ago via ATO Records/Rough Trade. Now, after a triumphant release from the world’s longest lockdown in Australia, Amyl & the Sniffers announce their long-awaited return stateside for a North American 2022 tour. In addition to the band’s previously announced show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in December which sold out in less than one day, the Sniffers will tour Spring 2022.

Comfort To Me, which was co-produced by the band and Dan Luscombe, is the follow-up to Amyl & the Sniffers’ critically acclaimed 2019 self-titled debut album, which won Australia’s esteemed ARIA Award for Best Rock Album and saw the band tour their anarchic and ridiculously fun live show internationally for the past two years. With its lyrics largely written during the Australian Bushfire season, when The Sniffers were already wearing masks to protect themselves from smoke in the air, Comfort To Me came together in a 3-bedroom apartment where the four band members quarantined together during COVID-19 lockdown. The result is a less spontaneous and more darkly considered record that masterfully captures the essence of the band like never before. “This album is just us — raw self expression, defiant energy, unapologetic vulnerability,” says Taylor. “It was written by four self-taught musicians who are all just trying to get by and have a good time.”
