Sheriff have gigged relentlessly since forming back in 2009. As well as destroying stages across Melbourne's sticky rock and roll scene for several years, they've also taken there wild and unpredictable live show everywhere from local pubs to festival stages, Western Australian mining towns, the back of a truck on a speedway in the Pilbara desert and a bikie clubhouse.
In 2012 they released their debut self titled EP followed by a second in 2013 entitled 'Roughhouse Hymns'. The trio have continued to destroy stages throughout the country over the past couple of years with constant gigging in their home of Melbourne as well as many tours of regional areas and cities interstate.
They've recently released wild new single 'The Ghosts Of Saturday Night' and are set to commence the recording of their debut full length release later in 2015. Go see them live. Sheriff are guaranteed to not only rock your socks off, but wrap them around your neck and strangle all but the most critical elements of your soul.
“Sheriff are one of the most talented rock ‘n’ roll bands in Australia. If you haven’t seen them yet, you’re missing out. Seriously. They’re so good that, without experiencing them live, there is a hole in your life.” (Matt Haycroft (very.live magazine)
“Sheer chaos was the order of the night with the final act, Sheriff. Exhibiting the ‘bad boy blues’ of early AC/DC and giving it the musical equivalent of a good kick in the gonads while wearing steel capped boots, Sheriff revelled in their musically tight but wildly unpredictable approach to playing live. – Neil Evans (Tone Deaf.com.au)
“For want of a better metaphor, Sheriff are the difference between a meaty stew and a thin broth. Endearing and full of heart, they will leave you with the utmost sense of satisfaction. Unafraid to challenge the stereotype they have created something monstrous, challenging you to ever lose interest, or even try to look away. They’ll find you. They are Sheriff after all.” Esther Rivers (Inpress magazine)
"The entire set is perfectly orchestrated pandemonium complete with stage invasions and Watson surfing over the crowd astride a demonic looking horse...Sheriff are certainly going to be a tough act to follow." Maddison Thomas (Beat Magazine)

Still trying to come to grips with the consequences of listening to this song. I guess one needs to come to the decision whether the sacrifice of waking up naked, facedown in a rubber dinghy in a fountain the middle of Melbourne's CBD is a worthy consequence of listening to Sheriff. I believe wholeheartedly it was, and will continue to be. If you like you're music like your women: lou...
Still trying to come to grips with the consequences of listening to this song. I guess one needs to come to the decision whether the sacrifice of waking up naked, facedown in a rubber dinghy in a fountain the middle of Melbourne's CBD is a worthy consequence of listening to Sheriff. I believe wholeheartedly it was, and will continue to be. If you like you're music like your women: loud, dirty, a little bit heavy and dripping grease, these guys are for you. 5 stars (and thanks for the bruises and mystery itch)
