Melbourne-based punk four-piece Amyl and the Sniffers announce their April 2019 UK dates, including a headline show at Manchester’s The 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.
“Aussie punks Amyl and the Sniffers – almost literally – tore apart London’s beloved Moth Club last night…[Taylor] clings to ceiling, seeming to walk along it, defying gravity, as though she’s possessed.” NME

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, Joan Jett, 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.
"Led by human firework Amy Taylor, Melbourne’s magnificent garage crew Amyl and the Sniffers play the single most exhilarating rock’n’roll show I’ve seen in years." The Guardian
Pulling rave reviews since the release of their 10-track EP Big Attraction & Giddy Up, combining their previous two EPs of the same titles, Amyl and the Sniffers talk of plans to release their eagerly-anticipated debut album later this year. Ahead of which, the band have announced 3 UK shows for April 2019, including a headline performance at Manchester’s The Deaf Institute.
