Bio

Smacked Youth is a punk project from Newcastle, NSW lead by Sam D’Agostino.

2019 saw 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 "Dumb" which was premiered on Triple J's Home and Hosed in September 2019. Sam was back in the studio earlier this year recording singles “Bones”, and “My Station” which landed on Spotify's New Music Friday, Rock Out and Local Noise playlists as well as receiving plays on Triple J's Home and Hosed and Short Fast Loud.

Smacked Youth is releasing an upcoming single “Getting Old” on November 6th and plans to resume touring plans in 2021.

this feels like the unofficial sequel to blink's 'dammit' and tbh i'm not totally surprised it's come from the thriving newcastle rock scene.

Smacked Youth rippin' this one to shreds. I love those growlier / heavier moments SO much. Add Nirvana to those influences!
