…and yet another banger off the brilliant Australian punks highly anticipated second album that’s due to be unleashed later this year!
Amyl and the Sniffers have shared ‘Security’, the second single to be lifted from their forthcoming album Comfort to Me. The fiery new track is accompanied by a video that sees frontwoman Amy Taylor, dancing frantically around a graveyard.
Shot and directed by John Angus Stewart, you can watch the video for ‘Security’ below:
Along with the new release, the band also announced a Livestream performance for Tuesday, 5th October that will see them playing Comfort to Me in full, in one take, “on a slab of concrete in a suburban wasteland” in their local Melbourne.
Tickets are available here.
Amyl and the Sniffers announced Comfort to Me, their second album, earlier this month when they drop the first single ‘Guided by Angels’.
Taylor said that the songs for the album describes the state of the world, herself and generally the whole shit fight of 2020 because half of the lyrics were written during the Australian bushfires and the other half during lockdown.
“I had all this energy inside of me and nowhere to put it because I couldn’t perform. It had a hectic effect on my brain. My brain evolved and warped and my way of thinking about the world completely changed,” she said.
“Having to deal with a lot of authority during 2020 and realising my lack of power made me feel both more self-destructive and more self-disciplined, more nihilistic and more depressed and more resentful, which ultimately fuelled me with a kind of relentless motivation.
“I became a temporary monster. I partied more, but I also exercised heaps, read books and ate veggies. I was like an egg going into boiling water when this started, gooey and weak but with a hard surface. I came out even harder. I’m still soft on the inside, but in a different way.”
The Nick Launay-produced follow-up to their self-titled 2019 debut is set to arrive Friday, 10th September.
