Texan pop-punk trio

Waterparks are a pop-punk trio from Austin, Texas who blend forbearers such as blink 182 and Fall Out Boy with elements of pop, hip-hop and electronica. The band was formed by frontman Awsten Knight, drummer Otto Wood and guitarist Geoff Wigington in 2011.

Following two self-released EPs in 2012 and 2014, the trio teamed up with heavyweights Benji Madden of Good Charlotte and producer Courtney Ballard (5 Seconds Of Summer) to record their first EP for a label, 2016’s Cluster

A summer on the prestigious pop-punk proving ground of the Warped Tour set the stage for the band’s debut album, Double Dare, released in late 2016. This was followed in 2018 by Entertainment, which saw Waterparks again team up with Benji Madden and raised the band’s profile further in both the US and the UK.

In 2019, the band demonstrated their diversifying range on their third album FANDOM, which featured dalliances with both electro-pop and hip hop. Positive reviews abounded.

The following year, the band announced they’d signed with the predominantly hip-hop orientated label 300 for their fourth album. Their first release for their new label was the single Lowkey As Hell, recorded with FANDOM producer Zakk Cervini (Poppy, Yungblud, All Time Low).  

On 19 October 2020, Waterparks announced their SEE YOU IN THE FUTURE TOUR visiting seven UK cities in summer 2021.

The band also confirmed the release of FANDOM: LIVE IN THE UK, their first concert film and live album out on 27 November 2020. Recorded and filmed in January 2020 at a sold-out show at O2 Academy Birmingham on their FANDOM tour, it utilised special effects to create an otherworldly experience that's both exhilarating and intimate.

“As a co-director, I wanted it to be like an IMAX Waterparks show but in an alternate universe and so every song is warped out and stylised to look how it feels to me while we’re performing,” said Knight. “It took us six months of editing daily to create what we consider an innovative/abstract experience while still remaining cohesive and thoughtful.”
