Waterparks have announced their debut album will drop this November.
The band will drop the record, titled ‘Double Dare’, on November 4th. Alongside the news comes the album’s lead single, ‘Stupid For You’. You can check it out below.
‘Double Dare’ was recorded in Los Angeles with Benji Madden (Good Charlotte, 5 Seconds Of Summer) and Courtney Ballard (5 Seconds Of Summer, All Time Low).
“Everything about it is expanded and bigger,” explains frontman Awsten Knight. “We wanted to push the boundaries to show people that you can be more than one thing. This isn’t just a “pop-punk” band and I think when people hear the rest of the album, it’ll be pretty apparent. There are songs that have elements of jazz, hip-hip, pop, indie, electronic, punk, etc. As far as the lyrics go, they’re more personal than they’ve been on any other Waterparks release. This album has been in the works since last August or September, and in that time I’ve felt and dealt with a lot of different things. I was probably more open than I should be with some stuff but it’s fine. Honest songs are always best. It’s also got me at my happiest, so that’s a thing too.”

1. Hawaii (Stay Awake)

3. Stupid For You
5. Take Her to the Moon
