WATERPARKS SIGNS TO EQUAL VISION RECORDS – PARTNERS WITH THE MADDEN BROTHERS’ MDDN CO
DEBUT SINGLE “CRAVE” OUT NOW – PUPPY-FILLED MUSIC VIDEO TO BE RELEASED ON MONDAY
NOV 06 – Today, Houston, TX’s Waterparks has announced their signing to Equal Vision Records and released their debut single – “Crave” – via digital accounts such as iTunes and Spotify. The new song 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.”
A puppy-filled music video for “Crave” will premiere on Monday, November 9.
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). The band will release a new album in 2016 via Equal Vision Records.
The trio will perform as direct support to Good Charlotte on their recently announced upcoming reunion show in Los Angeles, CA at the Troubadour on November 19.
Waterparks is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Awsten Knight, guitarist/vocalist Geoff Wigington, and drummer Otto Wood.
