Today, Waterparks have released the video for new single ‘Dream Boy’ from the upcoming album, FANDOM, out October 11, 2019.

Last week, Sirius XM Hits 1Sirius XM’s Top 40 radio station and the largest station in the US – launched the world premiere of ‘Dream Boy’ after a spirited exchange between the station and the band on social media. The band challenged fans to get  #DREAMBOYONHITS1 trending as a Top 5 topic on Twitter in exchange for an early play on Sirius XM Hits 1. The fans delivered, with the hashtag peaking at #4 in the US. Sirius XM Hits 1 has added the track to their regular rotation, the bands’ first career add on the station.
Frontman, Awsten Knight, directed the surreal and vibey visual, making this his second directorial effort. In reference to the meaning behind this song, the Waterparks frontman says, “DREAM BOY IS ABOUT FAN EXPECTATIONS AND FEELING LIKE I’M CONSTANTLY BEING BUILT UP INTO SOMEONE/SOMETHING I CAN NEVER LIVE UP TO, WHICH WILL EVENTUALLY LEAD TO EVERYONE BEING DISAPPOINTED.” 

FANDOM, the third full-length from Waterparks (and first on Hopeless Records), and  produced by Zakk Cervini (Poppy, Yungblud, nothing, nowhere), is a colourful, diverse, and enigmatic collection of songs that includes the previously released, ‘Watch What Happens Next and the tornado-like, ‘Turbulent released in late May.
