Waterparks announce full length album and release new single

unnamed-5Houston natives Waterparks have some exciting news! The band has just announced that they will be releasing their debut full length album Double Dare on November 4th through Equal Vision Records. Earlier today, the band also dropped the first single off the album, Stupid For You, and launched the pre-orders for the album which can be found here. Fans will receive Stupid For You to download instantly with all pre-orders of the album.

The album was recorded with the legendary Benji Madden and Courtney Ballard, and is the follow up to the band’s three previous EPs (Airplane Conversations; 2012Black Light; 2014Cluster; 2016). Frontman Awsten Knight says on the album:

“It’s just more. Everything about it is expanded and bigger. We wanted to push the boundaries to show people that you can be more than one thing. This isn’t just a “pop-punk” band and I think when people hear the rest of the album, it’ll be pretty apparent. There are songs that have elements of jazz, hip-hip, pop, indie, electronic, punk, etc. As far as the lyrics go, they’re more personal than they’ve been on any other Waterparks release. This album has been in the works since last August or September, and in that time I’ve felt and dealt with a lot of different things. I was probably more open than I should be with some stuff but it’s fine. Honest songs are always best. It’s also got me at my happiest, so that’s a thing too.”
