Amyl and the Sniffers kicked off their US tour this weekend at the Primavera Festival, and you will want to make plans to see them because it will be their last trip around North America for “a long while” according to their social media.
The Australian punk band has garnered major attention in a short time thanks to their unforgettable vocalist Amy Taylor, and the incredible talent of drummer Bryce Wilson, guitarist Dec Martens, and bassist Fergus Romer.

The band created an EP in 2016 and fans comparing them to the heyday of punk, similar to The Stooges and Iggy Pop. One look at a video of their live shows confirms. But they are not limited to that and further examination of their live performances will make you want to experience it for yourself.
After releasing another EP in 2017, they created their first full length in 2019, the self-titled “Amyl and the Sniffers.” The singles “Cup of Destiny,” “Some Mutts (Can’t Be Muzzled),” “Monsoon Rock,” and “Got You” grabbed attention – including OC Music News editor-in-chief Jimmy Alvarez who kept saying, “You HAVE to check this band out!”
They followed up with “Comfort to Me” in fall 2021 and once again did well thanks to singles “Guided by Angels,” “Security,” and “Hertz.”
With Bob Vylan supporting and some amazing looking merch, OC Music News looks forward to catching them live. Amyl and the Sniffers will travel across the US, then return to the West Coast for a San Diego show at The Observatory on October 9th.
