While the official press release hasn't landed here yet (hopefully they don't forget about me), The Aquabats! revealed on Facebook earlier this evening that they've been given the greenlight for Season Two of THE AQUABATS! SUPER SHOW! New episodes will air on The Hub beginning in the Spring of 2013. While there isn't a ton of info just yet, the 'Bats promise "NEW EPISODES! NEW VILLAINS! OLD HEROES!"

I have a real soft spot for FEARLESS RECORDS' long-running "Punk Goes" series.

If you want to dig deeper, a link is provided. As always, this hits on all areas of 'rock' from indie and folk to black metal and grindcore - "Music for Grown-ups" that wouldn't be featured on the homepage of The Rock Father™ site.
