Melbourne four-piece Amyl & The Sniffers make rock 'n' roll ferocity seem effortless. Their self-titled 2019 LP—one of VICE's favorite overlooked records of that year—was chock-full of muscular, rambunctious riffs and singer Amy Taylor's wholly anarchic energy. They're the kind of outfit that packs their music with straightforward intensity, as you can hear on songs like "Some Mutts (Can't Be Muzzled)" and "Gacked On Anger." The group is one of the most combinations in guitar music right now, which is exactly why Noisey is presenting their tour this spring.
You can see the band for yourself on one of the dates on their North American run, which spans from the Pacific Northwest all the way to the East Coast. Tickets are available here, so don't miss out and also don't sleep on the band's forthcoming 7-inch Live At The Croxton, which is out out May 1 on ATO/Rough Trade. Pre-order that here. Watch a Mickey Mason-directed video of the band performing "Control," which we're premiering below.
