Amyl and the Sniffers "Gacked On Anger"

Amyl and The Sniffers are sharing “Gacked On Anger”, the final single before the release of their explosive debut self-titled album this Friday on ATO (North America) Rough Trade (Europe/UK) and Flightless Records (AUS/NZ). “Gacked on Anger” finds the Aussie quartet at their best – electric, fierce and powerful. Singer Amy Taylor leads the charge, her fiery vocals raging above the band’s taut riffs and driving drums. Taylor explains of the song:

“‘Gacked on Anger’ is roughly about being so angry that it feels like your gacked – gacked means like fucked on drugs – high. The lyrics “stressed on tick because I’m gacked on anger” – tick is a round about way of saying debt/loan. The song lyrics are about money and class and my experiences with that, and the weird way my mind tries to wrap around the idea of having money/not having money/being in debt/getting paid or not paid as a musician. It’s also about the rat race/pleasure/shame/stress of money and the power that it has on day to day life, and the power of class to keep us too busy and too dumb to help other people, or make any kind of change in the “system”. We keep on working really hard for peanuts. I’ve been lucky in comparison and I’m grateful but in reality shit’s pretty fucked sometimes, and there’s lots to be angry about.”

Amyl and The Sniffers, Formed in Melbourne, Australia in early 2016, the group and wrote, self-recorded and released their debut EP, Giddy Up, all in a span of twelve hours. Their second EP, Big Attractions, was released in February 2017 then re-released as a 12” double EP with Giddy Up, through Homeless Records in Australia and Damaged Goods in the UK.
