Waterparks have unveiled their anxiously awaited new single entitled “SNEAKING OUT OF HEAVEN”. The song notably marks the trio’s first new music since the release of their fifth full-length studio album, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY last spring. The new track is available to stream and download now HERE. Watch the track’s official music video below.
Once again, Waterparks break boundaries and surprise fans at every turn on their latest upbeat anthem. A propulsive beat catalyzes the song’s groove as glitchy electronics accent the production. Meanwhile, frontman Awsten Knight’s confessional and clever lyrics take center stage as he promises, “If you’re toxic, I’ll wear a HAZMAT. Do you think God knows you’ve been sneaking out of heaven? Like were his eyes closed?” The accompanying visual seamlessly translates this energy to the screen.
Kicking off another creative season, the group also just announced an extensive North American headline tour in 2024. The 23-city SNEAKING OUT OF HEAVEN TOUR kicks off on February 26 at Showbox SoDo in Seattle, WA, visits major markets coast-to-coast, and wraps on April 6 with the band’s largest Los Angeles headline show to date at the Hollywood Palladium. Loveless will provide support on all dates. Tickets for the tour go on sale next Friday, October 20 at 10:00am local time HERE.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY was released in April, and debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales Chart and No. 33 on the Billboard 200. The LP also marked the band’s highest charting album in the UK to date, debuting at No. 10.
Across the album, the pop-rock trio proves they might just be the biggest band of tomorrow. To understand why, you have to go back to the beginning. Their 2011 formation cemented the union of three distinct personalities. Raised somewhere in between the iPod generation and the first wave of social media – Awsten Knight [vocals, guitar], Otto Wood [drums], and Geoff Wigington [guitar] – occupy a diverse, yet unified creative crossroads. With influences running the gamut of Linkin Park, Every Time I Die, and Balance & Composure, to Donald Glover, One Direction, and Ke$ha, the trio move forward with a blatant disregard for the rules. Comprised of an eclectic batch of infectious, dynamic anthems, there’s something for everyone on the new record. As always, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY is meant for the people comprising this greater movement—like everything Waterparks do.
Waterparks’ magnetic pull has attracted a growing cohort of devoted fans who pack sold out shows, stream their songs like hell, and have even elevated the group to multiple Billboard charts as they’ve headlined the Sad Summer Festival and accompanied My Chemical Romance on a sold out arena tour last year. With INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, the three-piece step into an elevated sound and enhanced aesthetic that builds upon their half a billion career streams, widespread touring success, and major festival appearances at Reading & Leeds, Slam Dunk, among others.
