The Aints! comprise Ed Kuepper, Peter Oxley, Paul Larsen Loughhead, Alister Spence & Eamon Dilworth. 

Formed in 2017 The Aints! original brief was to recreate the sound and energy of The Saints, the band co-founded by Kuepper in 1973, as they celebrated 40 years since the release of that band's groundbreaking debut (I’m) Stranded in 1977. With such talent at play though, it wasn’t long before this inspired five piece created material of their own. An album The Church of Simultaneous Existence, comprised entirely of Kuepper originals written in the period 1969-1978, was was released internationally to much fanfare and was a hit with fans and critics alike.

“…it's like manna from heaven to anyone who’s worn smooth The Saints three Harvest albums” ★★★★ Mojo

“It blisters. It belts. Man its so damned good.” - 8/10 Classic Rock

“For songs that range from almost 40-50 years old, they sound timeless.” - Baltimore Out Loud

5-6-7-8-9 (the name taking it’s cue from The Saints’ 1977 4-track ep release 1-2-3-4) is the next release from The Aints! A 5-track mini-LP comprising alternate versions of album tracks Goodnight Ladies (single edit) and Country Song in G (acoustic) plus reworked versions of tracks from Kuepper’s 50 albums strong catalogue including Memories Are Made Of This (The Saints, 1978) Laughing Clowns (Laughing Clowns, 1980) and Hang Jean Lee (Ed Kuepper & The Kowalski Collective, 2007).

To celebrate the imminent release of 5-6-7-8-9 The Aints! will hit the road this June for shows both city and regional. In Canberra The Aints! will perform two sets with an interval.

5-6-7-8-9 will be released Friday June 14th on CD, digital and vinyl via ABC Music.
