WATERPARKS PREMIERE “PLUM ISLAND” MUSIC VIDEO; ANNOUNCED AS PERFORMERS FOR APMAS 2017
Houston, TX’s Waterparks is now premiering a new music video for “Plum Island”, featuring footage from their recent UK tour supporting All Time Low. The song comes from their debut full-length Double Dare, which is out now on Equal Vision Records. The video was filmed and edited by Tom Pullen and can be seen now at youtube.com/waterparks.
Today, Waterparks has been announced as a performer for the 2017 Journeys Alternative Press Music Awards, Fueled by Monster Energy. The band is also nominated for three awards: Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Breakthrough Band. Voting for the awards is open now through June 30 at altpress.com/vote.
Waterparks recently wrapped up a North American co-headline tour with Too Close To Touch that sold out at nearly every single date – including New York City, Chicago, Houston, Detroit and Baltimore. The band will next head out on their first ever tour of Japan, which will kick off with a headline show on May 20, followed by dates supporting All Time Low. This summer, Waterparks will join All Time Low on the US leg of their world tour, with additional support from SWMRS and The Wrecks. Waterparks has also just announced their first UK headline run and two additional headline shows in Germany, which will take place this fall. All upcoming tour dates can be found below.
Tickets for all shows are on sale now at waterparksband.com.
Leading up to the release of Double Dare, Waterparks saw exclusive looks from Sirius XM Hits 1 for the premiere of “Hawaii (Stay Awake)” on Pete Wentz’s Hits Misses show and with BBC Radio 1 for the premiere of “Royal” on Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter, where the song was named the Rockest Record and has since seen additional spins on the shows of Annie Mac, Clara Amfo, Huw Stephens (hosted by Phil Taggert) and more. The band also recently performed live in session at Maida Vale for BBC 1 Radio.
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).
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 the band’s first ever full band magazine cover with Rock Sound – as well as several additional solo spots for Knight on the covers of Alternative Press, Rock Sound and Kerrang! magazines. The band has also toured with the likes of Good Charlotte, Sleeping With Sirens, and State Champs, performed on the entirety of the 2016 Vans Warped Tour and at SXSW, So What?! and Slam Dunk festivals, and completed several UK tours – one of which included performances at the prestigious Reading and Leeds Fest.
Waterparks is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Awsten Knight, guitarist/vocalist Geoff Wigington, and drummer/vocalist Otto Wood.
