Bio

Smacked Youth are a 3 piece Alternative Punk band from Newcastle, Australia. Originally started by Guitarist/Lead Vocalist Sam D’Agostino and Drummer Adrian Smith in 2015 while they were still in high school. In late 2016 they were joined by Bassist, Jake Cragg.

Smacked Youth have built a strong fan base in Newcastle over the course of 2016 and 2017 through playing many shows and releasing popular songs 'Drown'(2016) and 'Run'(2017). Their live shows are loud, intense and often consist of sweaty mosh pits!

Influences include bands such as Cloud Nothings, Violent Soho, Nirvana and Silverchair, just to name a few. They have recently been chosen by Cloud Nothings (USA) to open their Sydney show in February, at the Oxford Art Factory as part of their 2018 Australian tour.

i'm listening to this in my headphones but the whole room is shaking. this slays and it's so good how those vocals cut through the heaviness.
