Aitches are Brad (ex GameOver), Shaun, Joel and Matt and play melodic punk rock in the vein of Descendents or Bodyjar.
After releasing the ‘Trouble/What You Know’ single in January to kind words from old and new friends Aitches unleasheded their debut album ‘Stay in Bed’ on Friday 23 March. With 15 tracks clocking in at under 33 minutes this record is a flat-out melodic punk blast from go to whoa. We’d like to think so anyway.
The album is available on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’ download or $15 for a physical copy posted to your door.
Aitches have been gigging solidly for the past few months including winning the Triple J Unearthed Soundwave Festival competition for Melbourne and playing a storming set to open the day’s festivities. Aitches have also been a featured artist on Triple J Unearthed and had the song ‘Trouble’ played on Short.Fast.Loud, Home & Hosed and added to rotation on Triple J Unearthed radio.
Kind words for first single ‘Trouble’:
If you’re a fan of melodic punk like Bodyjar or Descendents, then this is your band. - Dom Alessio, triple j
A good riff but an even better melody. I love those bits where the guitar follows the vocals. Nice! - Lindsay McDougall, triple j
Tight, snappy, melodic punk - Bomber, Bomshellzine.com
Phonologically killer name - Chucking a Mosh
Makes me wanna dust off the skateboard and jump around. Great track. - Jabio, triple j unearthed review
