Tickets for both shows are on-sale 9.00am Friday 21st December .

"The primal Nights In Venice lifts the intensity factor exponentially, dissolving into squalls of guitar as Kuepper busts out an incredible solo with the band maintaining the tension behind him.”  - Brisbane review / The Music

But wait, there’s more … in addition to the live shows The Aints will record an album - working title ‘The Church Of Simultaneous Existence’ - comprised entirely of songs written by Kuepper in the period 1973 - 1978.

''Things had started to move fairly quickly once The Saints recorded  [[]I'm] Stranded (Fatal Records) in mid ’76. We recorded three albums over the next two years as well as doing a fair it of touring, and for a while things were looking very promising, however, business problems, compounded by personal and artistic differences meant the band didn't get around to recording all the material I had lying around....so forty [[]very] odd years later it occurred to me that these songs might well have made up a hypothetical 4th album....The Church of the Simultaneous Existence.....the songs that refused to die....performed in much the way they would have had the band not split up in 1978’’ - Ed Kuepper (on the until now, lost songs of The Saints.

The Aints recording begins this April while The Aints Play The Saints (’73 - ’78) perform live this March.

"We will hear these songs, outside the live context, and perhaps some other newer ones when The Aints go into a studio in 2018. Now, that is an exciting prospect" - i94bar.com

Don’t miss The Aints, live and on record in 2018.
