As they wrote and recorded their second full-length album Entertainment [Equal Vision Records]out January 26, 2018, a wise prophet’s words stuck with Waterparks...

.Their full-length debut, Double Dare earned a rare 4.5-out-of-5 star rating from Alternative Press and spawned the hit “Stupid For You,” which generated over 4.6 million Spotify streams and counting.

On the road, they tore up venues everywhere alongside All Time Low, Good Charlotte, Sleeping With Sirens, State Champs and more in addition to selling out their first UK jaunt and 14-out-of-23 dates on a US co-headliner. Among various accolades, Awsten graced the cover of Alternative Press for the Warped Tour issue, and the entire band covered Rock Sound. Not only did they play the Alternative Press Music Awards, but they took home the award for “Breakthrough Artist” and garnered “Best International Newcomer” from Rock Sound. In the middle of this whirlwind, they hunkered down and created Entertainment.

For the first time, they switched up the writing process and traded H-Town for Los Angeles. Awsten holed up in a North Hollywood Airbnb, but he wasn’t alone... “The place was totally fucking haunted,” he recalls. “There would be random door closings. One night, I literally heard a couple of female voices whispering in my ear, ‘It’s okay. Come with us. ’It felt super demonic. Then, it was all quiet when I got up. I was like, ‘Fuck this.’I stole some Holy Water and sage from a catholic church, but I said a prayer and apologized since I needed it. It was definitely a different creative process.”

Having exorcised the living quarters, the bandmates hit MDDN Studios with producers Benji Madden [Good Charlotte, 5 Seconds of Summer] and Courtney Ballard [5 Seconds of Summer, All Time Low] behind the board, reuniting the Double Dare team.

“It was nice to get out of that haunted ass Airbnb,” laughs Awsten. “It worked so wel l the first time with Benji and Courtney, so it made sense to do it again. It’s such an easy process with them. They trust our songwriting.”

“I want fans to hear Entertainment and know we’re just being real,” he leaves off. “We don’t want to be pigeonholed. We can make rock, we can make heavier music, and we can sound pop. It’s who we are. Ultimately, it all comes down to the hooks and songs. These are the biggest and best we can write. I know every band says that, but fuck it. I’m being honest.”
