Today, Waterparks enter their highly-anticipated new era with its lead single, ‘FUNERAL GREY’,their debut release on Fueled By Ramen. The vibrant track is out now alongside the official video, directed by Awsten Knight himself and Erik Rojas (24kGoldn, Rich Brian, Chase Atlantic), featuring Awsten’s signature new hair colour that saturates the song’s visuals.
Its infectious guitar riff and Awsten’s bright, energetic vocals, culminate in a summer anthem.
