Houston, TX's Waterparks will release their new EP, Cluster, on January 15 via Equal Vision Records. Cluster was recorded with producers Benji Madden (Good Charlotte, 5 Seconds of Summer) and Courtney Ballard (5 Seconds of Summer, All Time Low).
"We're super excited to be signed to Equal Vision Records. We've all been listening to EVR bands since 8th and 9th grade so actually joining the label's roster is insane. We've always seen Equal Vision as a label that lets bands be as weird or experimental as they want to be, so we thought it was a great fit for us," says vocalist Awsten Knight. "Also, Say Anything is on this label, so now Max Bemis kinda has to be friends with us. Hi Max."
Waterparks performed as direct support to Good Charlotte on their recent reunion show in Los Angeles, CA at the Troubadour on November 19, where Billboard praised Waterparks on their "killer hooks and killer attitudes." The trio has also seen early support from MTV and BBC Radio One, and can even be seen making a cameo in Good Charlotte's new music video.
Waterparks will soon head out on their first full US tour, as the opener on Never Shout Never's upcoming headliner that will span from January 13 to February 27. All upcoming tour dates can be found HERE.
Waterparks lead single - "Crave" - debuted via a puppy-filled music video on Billboard.com, while their second song released from the album - "Mad All The Time" - premiered via AltPress.com.
Waterparks has also partnered with MDDN.co., which was founded by the Madden Brothers in 2014. MDDN specializes in management, publishing, and production. MDDN defines itself as being for artists, created by artists. Of the new partnership Joel Madden shares, "We are extremely excited to be working with Waterparks. One of the best young bands we've heard in years. They are talented musicians, prolific writers, and a great live band. We are excited for the future of this band, and proud to be a part of their team."
To date, Waterparks has released two EPs: Black Light (2014) and Airplane Conversations (2012). Waterparks is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Awsten Knight, guitarist/vocalist Geoff Wigington, and drummer/vocalist Otto Wood.
