Amyl and the Sniffers Reveal New Album 'Comfort to Me'
Listen to the record's newly shared song "Guided by Angels"
Published Jul 07, 2021Aussie punks Amyl and the Sniffers have just announced plans for their sophomore full-length album, Comfort to Me. The record is out September 10 via ATO, and today the band are offering up its lead single.
Speaking on the new record, frontwoman Amy Taylor explained how the pandemic was the perfect incubator for a bunch of new material — even if the circumstances were a little maddening:
All four of us spent most of 2020 enclosed by pandemic authority in a 3-bedroom rental in our home city of Melbourne, Australia. We're like a family: we love each other and feel nothing at the same time. We had just come off two years of touring, being stuck in a van together eight hours a day, and then we're trapped together for months in this house with sick green walls. It sucked but it was also nice. We spent heaps of time in the backyard listening to music, thrashing around in shorts, eating hot chips. The boys had a hard time being away from the pub and their mates, but it meant we had a lot of time to work on this record. Most of the songs were really intuitive. Main thing, we just wanted it to be us.
She added: "I reckon it's like watching an episode of The Nanny but the setting is an Australian car show and the Nanny cares about social issues and she's read a couple of books, and Mr. Sheffield is drinking beer in the sun."
Today, the group share "Guided by Angels," which arrives today with its own music video by John Angus Stewart.
