After teasing the release of new music with an Instagram livestream which featured frontman Awsten Knight cutting his green hair off, Waterparks have returned with a brand new single— and brand new record deal.
The band have released their latest single “Lowkey As Hell”, which is the band’s first bit of new material since 2019’s Fandom.
Waterparks have also announced they have left Hopeless Records and have signed a deal with 300 Entertainment (Young Thug, Megan Thee Stallion, Fetty Wap).
Speaking on “Lowkey As Hell” and the 300 Entertainment deal, Awsten Knight said-
“Over the years, we’ve gotten better at switching it up. By making moves like getting with 300 – an almost exclusively hip-hop oriented label – and not forfeiting our guitars once we signed the deal, I think we’re actually taking steps to help rock. Either way, fuck genres and expectations. There’s no reason to be limited.
The song is a recap of the last year or so. It really describes what’s been going on and who I am. When I’m onstage, I’m a forward-facing, extroverted presence. At the same time, I’m also the biggest hermit ever. I just like to stay in, ignore my phone a lot, and write. I’m naturally reserved in my day-to-day life. The juxtaposition of loud materialism versus private emotion in that opening line really encapsulates the feeling I wanted to get across in the rest of the song.”
