Lead singer and songwriter Melissa Brooks says, “There was a cool girl in my middle school who was really edgy and I asked her who her favorite band was and she said Incubus. My parents bought me their CD from Walmart and I listen to them everyday. All of the cool kids in high school loved Sublime and so did I. So it is truly an honor to share the stage with the both of them as they have made a major impact on my life. They have help shaped my formative years and my love for rock and roll.“

The Aquadolls formed in La Mirada, CA in January 2012. Lead singer and songwriter Melissa Brooks began recording bedroom demos of her songs and eventually released the album ‘We Are Free’ in early 2013, followed by the LP ‘Stoked on You’ in December 2014. After a brief break from releases, the stars aligned in July 2018 and the new era of The Aquadolls commenced with Jacqueline Proctor on drums and Keilah Nina on bass. The band grew as a powerful threesome leading up to the release of The Aquadolls’ highly anticipated second album, ‘The Dream and the Deception,’ recorded and self-produced by Brooks and self-released October 28, 2018, on Aqua Babe Records.
Following their sophomore album, the trio self-released the single “Suck on This” in summer 2019, followed by their 2020 viral cover of Lash’s “Take Me Away” (a track made famous via its inclusion in the 2003 Lindsay Lohan-starring Disney film ‘Freaky Friday’). They signed with California-based Enci Records in 2021, and released a series of well-received singles (“Disappearing Girl” and “Cry Baby”), while playing festival dates such as Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Beach Life and Ohana Festival, opening for Jimmy Eat World and touring with the likes of White Reaper and more. The Aquadolls will release a new LP in 2022.
The Aquadolls launched their co-headline tour with Sitting on Stacy and recently released a new single titled “Cry Baby” produced by Fat Mike of NOFX.

“Cry Baby” sonically takes inspiration from 1960s pop and the band’s 2013 Stoked On You era. The Aquadolls recorded this song with Fat Mike of NOFX, bringing a new twist to the classic sound of The Aquadolls.
Brooks says, “Cry Baby tells the story of an emotional hopeless romantic going to a rock concert and instantly falling in love with the badass guitarist. They imagine what it would be like to be involved with them, even if it’s just for one night.”
|The Aquaolls had a busy summer and fall playing festival dates such as Lollapalooza, Ohana Fest and Beach Life, while landing a gig opening for Jimmy Eat World in Chicago. The release of their debut Enci Records single ‘Disappearing Girl’ and holiday single (a cover of The Waitresses’ classic ‘X-Mas Wrapping)’ led to spins and appearances on San Diego’s 91X, Sirius XM’s Rodney on the Rock, the long-running Ska Parade and Ted Stryker’s Tuna On Toast Podcast, as well as coverage on outlets such as Spin, Paste Magazine, Flood, Hollywood Life and LA’s KTLA TV.|

|What others have said about the Aquadolls|
“Coming from the suburbs of Los Angeles, the Aquadolls are punk pioneers in the broadest sense. They ooze eclecticism, stacking elements of indie– and surf-rock on top of a distinctly pop-punk foundation. While their sound might not exist at a comfortable spot for genre purists, fans of sonic experimentation will surely find their versatility entrancing.”- Alternative Press
“…fuzzy surf-psych-grunge pop from Southern California with an ebullient sing-a-long vibe.things are on the up-and-up for this cool crew.”- Oh My Rockness
“The Southern California band effortlessly pours out infectious shoegazey bops, earnest headbangers, cosmic surf-punk ballads, and electrified power-pop anthems. Despite the sheer range of styles and genres reflected in their music, there’s a real cohesion to The Aquadolls’ addicting combination of sharp edges and even keel. No matter what vibe a given song has, it’s clear The Aquadolls are putting everything they have into the music they’re making.”- Hard Noise
“This is a rock band composed of womxn unafraid to unhinge their music from easy listening, a powerfulness laced with irony and sarcasm and sweltering feeling in all of their songs.”- Lithium Magazine
“The Aquadolls have managed to piece together an anthem-in-waiting. Powered by woozy chords and a hazy soundscape set atop delicate but resonating vocals, ‘Disappearing Girl’ feels as though it’s been delivered to us fresh from (a) distant dream. Fingers crossed that world domination is part of their plan.”- Blunt Mag
” A shimmering piece of indie rock, “Disappearing Girl” is built on fizzling layers of percussions as The Aquadolls toy with the raw elements garage and chest-swelling air of dream rock.”- Aupium
“A punk rock power ballad doesn’t sound like it could be possible, but The Aquadolls somehow pull off the impossible.”- If It’s Too Loud
“…energetic and infectious. They’re better than caffeine.”- Illinois Entertainer
