Police say that the band members then started searching their trailer and found the cardboard box with the money wrapped up in the suspect’s sweater with other merchandise boxes.
The suspect again denied involvement but then allegedly finally admitted to taking the money once he realized that the band was firing him and that he wouldn’t be allowed back on the tour bus.
He also told police that he was tired of the band members leaving money all over the bus and wanted to prove a point but was going to return the money later.
Waterparks are on the verge of something big. After spending the last year and a half climbing the ranks of the pop-punk scene with their debut Double Dare, the band is slated to release their follow-up, Entertainment, on January 26th via Equal Vision Records.
I recently sat down with the band’s lead singer, Awsten Knight, and he is careful and thoughtful in his responses to questions about his band’s sophomore effort. If you watch carefully, you can see that Knight doesn’t want to reveal too much too soon. Viewers can see his excitement bubbling just beneath the surface. He reveals that the band is trying new things; spicing things up with synthesizers and taking a step beyond their previous work.
Riff Raff would like to collaborate with Waterparks. Speaking of Waterparks, I must not have been paying attention to the band’s song ”Little Violence” when I listened to it a few months back, because I totally missed this part:
I wanna be a sellout just to piss y’all off
While absolutepunk’s sucking off beard-punk songs
Maybe if we’re lucky we’ll get a review
And if that goes well, maybe a feature too
This is pretty funny. I do love me some beard-punk.
