Waterparks Release Music Video for “EASY TO HATE”


Waterparks (Awsten Knight, Geoff Wigington, and Otto Wood) released their third full-length album, FANDOM, via Hopeless Records last Friday! But the fun isn’t over. The band just released a music video for the track, "EASY TO HATE," off of the album.

The music video is basically any Waterparks fans dream because the band is stuck in someone’s house throughout the whole video. Although the person doesn’t seem to be too excited over the band being there.. LOL. No matter where the person goes, all three members of Waterparks are there to greet him.

Produced by Zakk Cervini (Poppy, Yungblud), FANDOM is lyrically genius in our opinion, with lyrics like, "You were yellow / But the lights were red / We both know you’d never stop / Until we both fell dead."

Speaking to the themes of the album, Awsten shares, "We talked about music culture and fandom culture, how those things affect me, where I am mentally, and even a little bit about those relationships. A lot of the stuff that is more ‘heartbreak’ centered is coming from a more confident place than a self-pitying view. That’s why this is my favourite stuff we’ve done."

And we totally agree! This is the perfect album to just jam out to whether you’re going through a heartbreak OR if you’re just upset at someone who did you wrong.

"I hope audiences experience the record with open minds," says Awsten. "It would be easy to repeat ourselves. The older albums are a part of who we are. I want listeners to accept growth and the honest expression of where we’re at now. This is Waterparks."
