Amyl & The Sniffers
"Hopefully we'll get first pressings of Sleaford Mods' records..."

Australian punks Amyl & The Sniffers have signed a deal with Rough Trade.

The band are part of an explosion of energy with the East Coast of Australia, with a plethora of hilariously raucous punk acts pouring out of the area.

Amyl & The Sniffers flew out to the UK to play The Great Escape in May, playing a handful of stand-alone shows around the showcase.

With Damaged Goods issuing a vinyl compilation of their initial EPs, the band's rama-lama, potty-mouthed punk anthems made for addictive listening.

Rough Trade have swooped to nab the band's signature, with Amyl & The Sniffers joining their roster.

The Australian group commented: "It's sick to sign with Rough Trade, the label has a great history. Plus hopefully we'll get first pressings of Sleaford Mods' records."

For their part, Sleaford Mods' Jason Williamson commented: “At least they look like they’re scum instead of pretending they are...”

Amyl & The Sniffers are set to release their debut album (proper) in 2019.
