Interview: Waterparks (Video Interview)

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.


The Riff Raff News Is Just an Excuse to Write About Waterparks

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.
