Amyl & the Sniffers Release New Songs ‘U Should Not Be Doing That’ and ‘Facts’

    Amyl & the Sniffers are back with their first new music in over three years. The Australian quartet recorded ‘U Should Not Be Doing That’ with Nick Launay, and it arrives alongside the B-side ‘Facts’ – out on limited edition 7″ on May 24 via Rough Trade. Check out a video for ‘U Should Not Be Doing That’ and listen to ‘Facts’ below.

    “Lyrically they’re both self-explanatory,” the band’s Amy Taylor shared in a statement. “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 favourite rug or something.”

    Amyl & the Sniffers released their sophomore album, Comfort to Me, in 2021.
