Picture This Release “One Drink” Music Video

Today, critically acclaimed Irish international phenomenon Picture This release the official music video for their new single “One Drink.” Watch HERE. Listen HERE via Republic Records.

The song heralds the arrival of the band’s anxiously awaited second full-length album, MDRN LV, releasing in stores and at all digital retailers on February 15, 2019. Produced by Jayson Dezuzio [Imagine Dragons, X Ambassadors], the record represents a creative high watermark for the quartet as they expand their signature style and venture into uncharted sonic territory.

The biggest selling Irish act in both 2017 and 2018, and the nation’s hottest musical export in decades, Picture This arrived as a phenomenon with their self-titled 2017 full-length debut, Picture This. Certified triple-platinum in Ireland, it held the #1 spot Overall in the country for four weeks, while topping the Streaming Chart for seven weeks. Moreover, it remained in the Top 5 since release. Two years since their formation, they’ve impressively sold over 300K tickets, concluding 2017 with a sold-out UK and Ireland tour highlighted by gigs at O2 Shepherd’s Bush London, SSE Arena Belfast, and a two-night stand at 3Arena in Dublin. This summer marked their first stadium tour in Ireland, which capped off with a 35,000-person stadium show selling out over 3 months prior. During late 2018, they teamed up with super producer Jayson Dezuzio to record the 2019 follow-up, MDRN LV.

The Aquabats Launch Kickstarter Campaign

TV’s punk rock superheroes The Aquabats announce the launch of a Kickstarter campaign featuring Jack Black, Weird Al Yankovic and others in a new video entitled “I Am The Aquabats!” The Emmy-winning collective is gathering a Legion of Righteous Comrades (fans new and old) to rally in support of new music and new episodes of The Aquabats! Super Show! The band has heeded the longtime call of its loyal following – and are working with them to bring it all back! Click here to join the Legion.

The Aquabats’ leader, The MC Bat Commander, explains: “We’re gathering a Legion of Righteous Comrades that believes in the importance of sharing music, adventures and pizza. Only with the help of our homies from around the world can we bring back The Aquabats! Super Show! and make awesome new music and TV for the next generation.”

The Kickstarter campaign runs for one month, from July 31 at 10am PST through September 1 at 8pm PST, featuring a new episodic adventure as The MC Bat Commander leads fans on a quest to re-assemble The Aquabats while fending off some of their oldest foes – all while releasing new rewards and special surprises! The campaign will culminate in a live, climactic concert/telethon/finale hosted by The Aquabats at The El Rey Theatre featuring special guests, last-minute surprises, and a livestream countdown for those who can’t attend in person.

The campaign has two goals: To fund the full-time return of The Aquabats, leading to the first new episodes of The Aquabats! Super Show! since 2014, and the first new studio album since 2011; and to create a groundswell of support that tells the world: in an era of over-serious superheroes and hip cynicism, it’s time for a change. It’s time for the return of The Aquabats!

Jack Black and Electric Dynamite have also signed on to the new season in an Executive Producer capacity, should the campaign be successful and the show moves into production.

The Aquabats’ comrade, Jack Black, explains: “Ever since I met the MC Bat Commander on the set of Yo Gabba Gabba, I knew we were destined to become allies. Today, I’m excited to officially join forces with The Aquabats and our Righteous Comrades around the world. Together, we can save rock and roll for the kids… and us all. This is an extremely important mission, and I hope you’ll join us.”

The team spearheading the campaign comes from notable crowdfunding campaigns like Veronica Mars, Reading Rainbow, Super Troopers 2, and Mystery Science Theater 3000.

To thank backers for their support, the campaign will offer a wide variety of exclusive rewards and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, for pledges ranging from $10 to $10,000,000. The more notable rewards include original accessories designed by long-time band collaborator and noted designer Paul Frank, on-set and on-screen experiences during the filming of Super Show’s next season, and even the creation of a private album recorded for, and owned entirely by, the backer. At the highest tier of support, The Aquabats will buy a private island, legally rename it Aquabania, and appoint the supporter to a three-year term as the island’s first “Prime Minister.”

Additionally, the Legion can support The Aquabats by completing both solo and community missions that boost The Aquabats’ signal, recruit more members to the Legion and unlock more awesome rewards and upgrades for all backers.

About The Aquabats

TV’s punk rock superheroes 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 blue 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.” 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). Current Aquabats are Christian Jacobs, “The MC Bat Commander” (lead singer), Chad Larson, “Crash McLarson” (bass, vocals), Ian Fowles, “EagleBones FalconHawk” (guitar), Richard Falomir, “Ricky Fitness” (drums), and James Briggs, “Jimmy the Robot” (keyboards, woodwinds, vocals).

About The Aquabats! Super Show!

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 Daytime EMMY nominations and one win. Super Show!’s run was cut short when The Hub closed in 2014, leaving fans demanding a return ever since.

Imagine Dragons New Song

Today multi-platinum, GRAMMY® Award-winning band IMAGINE DRAGONS release a brand-new song entitled “Natural” via KIDinaKORNER / Interscope Records. “Natural” is available via all participating digital retailers HERE. The band will perform the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Thursday, July 19th. “Natural” has been chosen as the anthem of this year’s ESPN college football season.

“Living in a dog-eat-dog world can bring out the worst in you, and sometimes, the best,” says the band’s singer Dan Reynolds. “It would be a lie to tell you I haven’t become somewhat skeptical about some things in the last decade of my life. However, I believe that when you truly learn to love yourself, the judging eyes and hateful words become meaningless. ‘Natural’ is about finding yourself and being willing and able to stand up to whatever adversity comes your way.”

Imagine Dragons’ third studio album, Evolve, has been certified double-platinum within a year of its June 2017 release. Evolve has spent 55 weeks on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, where it currently sits at No. 17. The album is also 12th in the world on Spotify with over 36 million monthly listeners.

Imagine Dragons are currently out on the road for the second leg of their Evolve World Tour, which will stop for two shows at The Forum in Los Angeles on July 21st and 22nd. See all upcoming dates HERE.

NEW YORK, NY-Summer is finally underway now that Mondo Cozmo has returned with brand new music… The critically acclaimed Philly-born and Los Angeles-based mohawked rock ‘n’ roll prophet will release his new Your Motherfucker EP on June 29 via Republic Records.

The four-track EP shows an elevated sound for Mondo Cozmo. “Tonight Tonight”(produced by John Hill (Portugal The Man), kicks off with rustling guitar that pick up into an infectious percussion. Soon, his voice takes hold, spinning a cinematic scene about “city boy blues” and “suicide queens” before the festival-ready chant, “Tonight, tonight, tonight. Elsewhere on the EP, “Your Motherfucker” sounds like the bastard child of LCD Soundsystem and Jeff Buckley, marrying glitchy dancefloor beats and evocative lyricism. That’s just the half of it though. Check out the full tracklisting below!

Your Motherfucker EP comes right in the middle of his tour with Vance Joy. The sold-out dates have run across the country and continue into mid-July- see full tour dates atwww.mondocozmo.com/tour
