Waterparks is now premiering their fun new music video for “Stupid For You” at waterparksband.com and youtube.com/equalvision. The video was directed by Ernie Gilbert (I the Mighty, Bayside) and the song comes from the band’s debut full-length, Double Dare, which was just released on November 4 via Equal Vision Records.
Leading up to the full album premiere, Waterparks saw exclusive looks from Sirius XM Hits 1 for the premiere of “Hawaii (Stay Awake)” on Pete Wentz’s Hits & Misses show and with BBC Radio 1 for the premiere of “Royal” on Rock Show with Daniel P Carter, where the song has also been named the Rockest Record and has since seen additional spins on the shows of Clara Amfo and Huw Stephens (hosted by Phil Taggert).
Double Dare was recorded in Los Angeles, CA with Benji Madden (Good Charlotte, 5 Seconds of Summer) and Courtney Ballard (5 Seconds of Summer, All Time Low). Double Dare is the follow-up to three EPs: Cluster(2016), Black Light (2014) and Airplane Conversations (2012).
The past year has been truly groundbreaking for Waterparks, who signed to Equal Vision Records, partnered with MDDN co., released Cluster, embarked on their first ever full US and UK tours, and landed spots for Knight on the covers of Alternative Press and Kerrang! magazines. The band has also toured as direct support on Good Charlotte’s US and UK reunion shows, on the entirety of the 2016 Vans Warped Tour, performed at SXSW, So What?! and Slam Dunk festivals and has just wrapped up their second UK tour, which included performances at the prestigious Reading and Leeds Fest.
The Houston, TX-based band is currently on a full US tour, supporting Sleeping With Sirens, State Champs, and Tonight Alive. The band has also just announced an in-store performance event on November 19 at Park Ave CDs in Orlando, FL. Additional information on the event can be found HERE. All upcoming tour dates can be found below.
Waterparks is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Awsten Knight, guitarist/vocalist Geoff Wigington, and drummer/vocalist Otto Wood.
