Get ready to get spooked! Punk rock’s superheroes, The Aquabats!, return with a brand new single and lyric video for “Pajamazon!”. The track comes off their new highly-anticipated album Kooky Spooky… in Stereo!, The Aquabats’ 6th studio album, the first since 2011’s High Five Soup!. This energetic, eclectic album is prime Aquabats with all of the variety, quirk and fist-pumping rock you can handle!
The album is set to release digitally June 20th, 2020 via Gloopy Records and is available for pre-order today at: http://theaquabats.com/kookyspooky
The track and lyric video to “Pajamazon!” was delivered to us during a time of uncertainty in the world amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and carries unanticipated relevance. The track offers listeners a positive spin on being indoors. “And now I eat pizza. Watch movies all day. Download new video games. (Need more food. Text delivery guy!).” While we are all spending more time with family and cherishing loved ones, the family-friendly jam’s horns and insanely catchy lyrics will have you dancing indoors and shouting “Ain’t never gonna go outside, go outside again!”.
“Back when we wrote and recorded ‘Pajamazon!’ the idea of staying inside with your pajamas on and never going to work again was a funny fantasy; something that was possible but ridiculous. Now that it’s a surreal reality for all of us, we thought it would be a good time to release it with the hope that it’s able to bring a smile to folks who are feeling a little stir crazy or uncertain. Let’s all stay positive! We’ll all get through this and we can’t wait to see our fans on the road and play them more new songs,” said The MC Bat Commander (Christian Jacobs).
Kooky Spooky… in Stereo! was made possible in 2018 by a record-breaking crowdfunding campaign. “The Legion of Righteous Comrades” (5,500+ Aquabats fans) pledged over $600,000 on Kickstarter and over $300,000 on other platforms for The Aquabats! to produce two new full-length studio albums and 13 web episodes of their cult classic kids’ TV show, The Aquabats! Super Show!
Listeners will take a walk on the weird side with songs like “Skeleton Inside!” and “No One Wants to Party!”, then jam to soon-to-be-classics like “Karate Body!” and “Dangerous Leon!” Crazy characters, maximum repeat listening and, yes, even horns… it’s all there! The Aquabats will also be going on tour – check out the dates here.
Presently, Saturday morning favorite, The Aquabats! Super Show! now lives on YouTube. The Aquabats! have been releasing new episodes of their live-action, comedy-adventure TV show for free! You can now see full-length classic episodes and brand new adventures on The Aquabats’ YouTube channel with guest stars from Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) to Weird Al Yankovic!
About: The Aquabats!, formed in 1994 in Orange County as a way to have some harmless fun in a music scene that took itself too seriously. Their Paul Frank designed “power belts,” trademark rash guards, black eye masks, “anti-negativity” helmets and onstage antics quickly caught on, earning the group a fiercely loyal following that spans generations. Their line-up and music is continuously evolving, including Blink 182’s Travis Barker as former drummer, “Baron Von Tito.”
In 2012, the band debuted The Aquabats! Super Show!, a live-action musical action comedy television series which aired on the Hub Network. The show received eight multiple Daytime EMMY nominations and one win.
To date, The Aquabats’ music library includes The Return of the Aquabats (1996), The Fury of the Aquabats! (1997), The Aquabats vs. The Floating Eye of Death (1999), Myths, Legends and Other Amazing Adventures, Vol. 2 (2000), Yo! Check Out This Ride! (EP, 2004) Charge!! (2005), Radio Down! (EP, 2010), Hi-Five Soup! (2011), and 2020’s newest addition – full studio album Kooky Spooky… In Stereo!
