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!

Even if you feel like AirPods are worth the price tag, you’ve got to admit there’s a certain anxiety that comes with using them. What if I lose them? What if they get wet in the rain? Or drenched in sweat? Or fall into the drink you dropped them into? Shiny tech is great, but […]
With the quick-fix appeal of video games and their own cell phones, it can be tough to keep kids focused on supposedly “educational” toys. And while it may seem counter-intuitive to fight tech with more tech, we’re all in when it comes to the Toybox 3D Printer. We’re not sure if anyone had envisioned a […]
Whether you’re an artist, designer or just organizing a photo album, photo editing software is a must. And software designers know it: Platforms like Photoshop and Lightroom have a ton of helpful features, but you’ll pay for them in spades. Luckily, there’s some competition in the photo editing arena.
