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.

2018 saw the release of 'The Devil's Tongue' the first single from the groups debut album. The long awaited record will soon be released....

“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 ( 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

“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)
