Today, pop-rock trio Waterparks debut a brand new single and video, 'You'd Be Paranoid Too (If Everyone Was Out To Get You)', off of their forthcoming album, Greatest Hits , out May 21st via 300 Entertainment - WATCH HERE. The video, directed by Erik Rojas & Awsten Knight, comes on the heels of the track release this past Wednesday, which was the latest installment of Waterparks Wednesdays - where the guys debut a new release on Wednesdays leading up to the album. 'You'd Be Paranoid Too (If Everyone Was Out To Get You)' is a super energetic track complete with hi-fi sonics and a hard-hitting beat. The guys' personalities shine through in this fun video - bouncing between vignettes all while rocking out to killer drum beats and Awsten's striking vocals.
When asked about the track, Awsten said, “The Number 103 is a 2007 American thriller film written by Fernley Phillips and directed by Joel Schumacher. Jim Carrey stars as a man who becomes obsessed with the 103 enigma once he reads about it in a strange book that seemingly mirrors his own life. The film was released in the United States on February 23, 2007. This is the second film to pair Schumacher and Carrey, the first being Batman Forever. The film grossed $103 million, and has an approval rating of 103% on Rotten Tomatoes.”
"You'd Be Paranoid Too (If Everyone Was Out To Get You)" is the follow up to the recently released "Numb" and the Daft Punk-esque "Snow Globe". With the massively anticipated Greatest Hits album release date nearing, fans are excited for a new body of work - the band is ready too, and they are revving up for a whole new era! Last month, the guys went on *virtual* tour for their livestream performance - The Anti-Tour, which was a great way for the guys to connect with fans and share live music, even if they couldn't do it in person. The band is gearing up for an upcoming performance as part of The Wiltern Livestream Series on June 4. Waterparks have also rescheduled their Europe headline tour for 2022 and have just been confirmed to play at the 2021 Slam Dunk Festivals! Waterparks are definitely back in full force and ready to share more of their brilliant music with fans.
Waterparks never sit still. The Houston trio—Awsten Knight [vocals, guitar], Otto Wood [drums], and Geoff Wigington [guitar]—manically move forward, shucking and jiving between fits of rock, alternative, and electronic with pop ambition and hip-hop’s bold and blatant disregard for the rules. As they usher in the Greatest Hits era, the band only pick up the pace. Waterparks has garnered a cult following for their animated musical stylings. 2019’s FANDOM elevated them to new critical and commercial peaks. Marking a series of career bests, it landed at #2 on the Billboard Top Alternative Albums Chart, granting their first Top 40 debut on the Billboard Top 200. KERRANG! rated it “KKKK” and MTV admitted, “We have no choice but to stan.” As the band nears 400 million cumulative streams to date, it yielded fan favorites, including 'I Miss Having Sex But At Least I Don’t Wanna Die Anymore,' 'Turbulent,' and 'Watch What Happens Next.'
