WATERPARKS

Biography

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).

Of the forthcoming full-length, frontman Awsten Knight shares, “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 August or September of 2015, 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.”

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.

This November, the band will head out on another full US tour, supporting Sleeping With Sirens, State Champs, and Tonight Alive. The tour will kick off in Chicago on November 3 at Concord Music Hall.
