Australian punks Amyl and The Sniffers have shared two new songs, “U Should Not Be Doing That” and “Facts,” the former via a music video. Both are out now via B2B Records / Virgin Music Group. Check out both songs below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

The band features Amy Taylor, Dec Martens, Gus Romer, and Bryce Wilson. They recorded the songs with Nick Launay (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Steven Ogg directed the video. Described as standalone singles, the songs follow the band’s 2021 album, Comfort to Me.

Taylor had this to say in a press release: “Lyrically they’re both pretty self-explanatory. ‘U Should Not Be Doing That’ makes me laugh, but it’s also in a way poking fun at the shock that people still feel at a little bit of skimpy clothing, and the bitchy high school way that the music community still is (yes I’m talking to you random 40 year old metalheads sitting around a table doing lines and bitching about a 28 year old chick in a band for wearing shorts and ‘selling out’) but it mainly makes me laugh. It’s unconscious and meant nothing at the time of writing it but now I think it’s a comedic way of rubbing the dog’s nose in its own dog piss after it wee’d on your favorite rug or something.”
