Melbourne-based punk four-piece Amyl and the Sniffers announce their April 2019 UK dates, including a headline show at Manchester’s Deaf Institute.
This will be the band’s first return to the UK since May 2018; a tour which began with an explosive performance as a break-out act at Brighton’s Great Escape festival, followed by three sold-out London headline shows at the Lock Tavern, The Lexington and the Moth Club – the latter of which attended by Jarvis Cocker himself.
Forming in 2016, the band is the product of former housemates Amy Taylor (vocals), Bryce Wilson (drums) and Declan Martens (guitar), who taking inspiration from the likes of AC/DC, Die Antwoord, Dolly Parton, formed the band, wrote a handful of tunes and released their debut EP Giddy Up all in the space of 12 hours.
Completing their line-up with Gus Romer on bass, they quickly gained a reputation for furious live performances, signing to King Gizzard’s Flightless Records for Australia/NZ, ATO/Flightless for North America, and following sell-out shows in the UK and Europe, Rough Trade for the rest of the world – the first Australian band to do so since The Go-Betweens.
