Watch Amyl and the Sniffers Rip Through Three Tracks at the Forum in Melbourne

Amyl and the Sniffers are celebrating one-year since they released their second album, Comfort to Me, by sharing a video in which they rip through two of its tracks and one from their self-titled 2019 debut live at Melbourne’s Forum Theatre. The footage was captured during the band’s Australian tour earlier this year.

“I wanted this to be filmed so people could see what our live show was like during the Comfort To Me touring period,” Amyl frontwoman Amy Taylor said in a statement.

The ten-minute video features live versions of ‘Capital,’ ‘Choices’ and ‘Some Mutts (Can’t Be Muzzled)’. The film shot by frequent collaborator John Angus Stewart of PHC Films. “He has been there filming since the beginning,” Taylor said. “John’s energy parallels mine, so I’m really happy having him on stage with me. You get up close and personal on these.”

Comfort to Me arrived in September 2021 after being previewed with singles ‘Guided by Angels’, ‘Security’ and ‘Hertz’. “The nihilistic, live in the moment, positivity and panel beater rock-meets-shed show punk was still there, but it was better,” Taylor said of the album upon its announcement. “The whole thing was less spontaneous and more darkly considered.”

Since Comfort to Me arrived, the band have toured heavily both in Australia and overseas, notching up appearances on late night US TV shows and performing at Coachella, Primavera and Glastonbury. They’ll round out the Comfort to Me touring cycle with appearances as part of Falls Festival over the New Year’s period, joining the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Lil Nas X, Peggy Gou, Chvrches, Jamie xx, Aminé and more.
