In celebration of the announcement, the band have also unveiled REAL SUPER DARK, the fourth-released single from the LP. The fiery, experimental song showcases a heavier side of the group, while infusing elements of pop, punk, and rock into their signature genre-bending sound. The track is an exciting at hint at much more to come from the full-length effort, which will be available in two Australian-exclusive vinyl variants – pre-order HERE.
In his exclusive interview with Kerrang!, frontman Awsten Knight revealed about the forthcoming record, “I think that it does everything that Waterparks does best, and it expands. There are pieces that feel like they could have been on any other albums, but then there’s elements of it that full-on expand past anywhere we’ve been before. I think there’s a perfect balance between the poetry that you’d find on [2018 album] Entertainment versus the blunt crazy shit that you’d find on FANDOM. It’s a perfect melding of all of it.”
To preview the new project, Waterparks unveiled a string of high-energy tracks in 2022. In October, the band shared the incendiary “FUCK ABOUT IT” (feat. blackbear), following the confessional, diaristic “SELF-SABOTAGE”, which was given a fresh take with a collaboration featuring Good Charlotte. “SELF-SABOTAGE” debuted after Waterparks’ debut single with Fueled by Ramen “FUNERAL GREY”, marking the trio entering their newest era – stepping into an elevated sound and enhanced aesthetic that builds upon their half a billion career streams and highly-engaged, global fanbase.
