The wonderful Aquabats, nearly killed when the network they'd signed with went out of business, are back, and they want to produce a new TV special episode of Super Show! with a new album to go with it.
They're kickstarting both, seeking a whopping $1.11 million (!), with premiums starting with access to the media they create, digital extras, tees, CDs, vinyl, posters, stickers, DVDs and Blurays, a limited edition wallet, and so on and so on.
I love this band, miss their show, and backed their Kickstarter.
We hear you loud and clear: It’s time for The Aquabats to get to work, making more music and bringing back the Super Show! But the truth is we can’t make ANYTHING without you... and since we're doing this for you, we wouldn't want to do it without you!
With YOUR SUPPORT, we can record The Aquabats' first NEW ALBUM since 2011, and shoot our first NEW TV SPECIAL since 2014. Not only will you get new music and television, you'll be helping introduce The Aquabats to a whole new generation of Righteous Comrades and future Aquacadets!

A once-underground movement of Finnish girls who conduct elaborate dressage routines with toy hobbyhorses has gone mainstream, with coaches, competitions and trainers, and is spreading abroad.
For musicians, clubgoers or anyone in the thick of a loud environment, earplugs aren’t just an option. If you plan on keeping your hearing through sustained exposure to levels over 85 decibels (roughly the sound of a blender), they’re a must. The good news is, most earplugs will muffle the sound. The bad news is, […]
Seasoned chefs have a bit of a love-hate relationship with their cutlery. A really good set of knives has to prove its worth by being put through the wringer – and if they’re really good, they’ll still look great afterward. So it is with the Damasukasu Japanese 3-Piece Master Chef Hanshu Knife Set. Sitting in […]
