Bio

Smacked Youth are a young, three-piece punk band from Newcastle with a high energy set that always moves a crowd. With their last two releases “Fucked Up” and “Headstrong” receiving airplay on Triple J and local acclaim, the boys are looking again to follow up bigger and better than before with an east coast tour and coming into 2019 strong.

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.”
