When we were at the 2013 Vans Warped Tour at the Pomona Fairplex we had the opportunity to talk with The Aquabats!. The band consist of The MC Bat Commander — Vocals, Crash McLarson — Bass, Jimmy The Robot – Keyboards / saxophone, Ricky Fitness — Drums and Eagle “Bones” Falconhawk – Guitar.
With 16 years and album sales of over 270,000 under their belts, SoCal’s The AQUABATS! are back with their brand new album HI-FIVE SOUP!, ready to shine a much-needed light into our lives, and prove once again that The AQUABATS! – led by the fearless MC BAT COMMANDER (Christian Jacobs, co-creator of the hit children’s television series Yo Gabba Gabba!) – are still a musical force to be reckoned with. The 12 track full-length album features guest vocals from hip hop Legend BIZ MARKIE on lead single “RADIO DOWN!”, a dancey-dance track with enough sugar weight to give your ears cavities, as well as an appearance from Strong Bad on “PINK PANTS!?” Join THE AQUABATS! as they put the AWESOME! back into “THAT BAND IS… AWESOME!!
The Aquabats – “HI-FIVE SOUP!” is available now.
