Ska-powered superheroes The Aquabats have posted some updates on their website about their next album. I’ll let the crew speak for themselves:
With a possible title for the next album already being thrown around, The Aquabats are busy working toward their next masterpiece!! “It will be a beauty!”, says Crash Mclarson, the Aquabats AKA ‘The little ray beam of positive Light’. “Everything the band is doing right now is like little golden cookies and I cant help but feeling so lucky to be part of the greatest band in the world!”, Crash gushes. It looks like things are really going to be great from now on, and it’s a good sign that Crash is working so hard to make sure this will be the best new record the Aquabats work on this Year.
The guys also address a specific incident that happened in Denver, CO during a ska festival:
Speaking of which, we apologize for the slow updates this past month but the Aquabats band management and booking agency have been working hard to make sure all the bands get paid and are compensated for their participation in the big ‘SKA’ fest show in Denver last month. It seems a fiasco arose when the young plucky promoter got in over her head and made too many deals with very little to back herself up. It was an unfortunate situation at a really awesome and fun event. It happens sometimes. It just does. And even though we got thrown under the bus for actually accepting the large offer to headline the show, and then actually expecting to be paid close to what we were promised (oh!…the audacity!…of HOPE!), we want to thank all the fans that stood by us and didn’t doubt our integrity. Not even for a second. When we say, “we will work something out..’. we meant it.. and our friends know it!
