After an extended absence, these Huntington Beach-natives return to the stage to celebrate their 20th anniversary and play a host of live shows. Aquabats spent the last few years collaborating on other projects, most notably The Aquabats! Super Show!, which follows around a fictionalized version of the group in their superhero glory, staving off villains and creatures trying to take over the world, all while pursuing their ambitions to become a world-famous rock band. It's taken up a lot of the band’s time since 2012, thus the root of their sporadic tour schedule. And though the Aquabats are a little older and a lot wiser, that doesn’t mean the quintet has lost any of their humor, nor the goofy names and music that made them popular in the first place.
