Amyl & the Sniffers – the Melbourne, Australia rock band fronted by powerhouse Amy Taylor – just wrapped up their triumphant stateside return for their first U.S. tour in nearly 3 years. The sold out run saw them perform at Coachella and Shaky Knees, as well as make their raucous U.S television debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers. The band announces that they’re ready to do it all over again with a U.S Fall tour, featuring some of the largest venues they have ever played. Ticket presale begins June 15 today @ 10:00am local time and general on-sale begins Friday, June 17 @ 10:00am local time. Get your tickets HERE.
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. 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.”
