Bio

Smacked Youth is a punk outfit from Newcastle, NSW lead by Sam D’Agostino. With a high energy set that always moves a crowd, their prior two releases “Fucked Up” and “Headstrong” receiving airplay on Triple J and local acclaim. Following up with "Couchbug" seen Smacked move into a newer sound and different age for the band - continuing into their own maturity and introspection. As the other members of the band moved away, Sam persisted and went into the studio recording the new single "Dumb" to be released in September 2019.

Smacked Youth have built a local rep and are establishing themselves as they continue into the future playing shows with notable acts such as Cloud Nothings, PLTS, Clowns, Pist Idiots, TOTTY, Introvert, Eat Your Heart Out and White Blanks. Also achieving a commendable 9th “Most Hit Unearthed Artist Profiles Of 2018 So Far” next to artists such as Ruby Fields, Kwame and G Flip.
A Newcastle Live spotlight article details into the band further stating “Their punk sound comes around as something fresh but inflicted with 90’s Seattle grunge vibes.”

a more cruisey punk sound here from smacked youth which i'm really liking. you're not fanging it down a hill or getting massive air but even without the stunts the band proves here that they can still pack a punch.
