WATERPARKS – ‘Watch What Happens Next’ (Official Music Video)
‘Watch What Happens Next’ marks the directorial debut of Waterparks’ frontman, Awsten Knight. The song examines the hypocrisy of fandom and success and the struggle to burst past the shackles of labels, genres, and our culture. Unapologetic, blunt, fearless, and filled with the bravado of an artist who is sick of the familiar and ready to flip all conventions for what a song could be, ‘Watch What Happens Next’ pulls no punches and blasts through the void with blind ambition and swagger.
FANDOM, the third full-length from Waterparks (and first on Hopeless Records), and produced by Zakk Cervini (Poppy, Yungblud, nothing, nowhere), is an eclectic and enigmatic collection of songs that include the aforementioned “Watch What Happens Next” and the frenetic, tornado-like, ‘Turbulent’ that was released in late May. Fans will have the first chance to pre-order the album here.
