The ultimate tease.
Last month Waterparks started teasing their fans by releasing a piece of tour merch which dropped a few key hints about the band's new era.
Along with teasers alluding to the title of the upcoming Waterparks album ('Friendly Reminder') and the name of a few new tracks ('Noise', 'Lemonade' and 'Glitter Times'), they also directly mentioned frontman Awsten Knight dying his hair red.
Overnight, that's exactly what Awsten did. He dyed his hair bright red, and debuted it at their show in Los Angeles:
Is this Awsten's not-so-subtle way of announcing to us that the new era of Waterparks has begun?
Quite possibly. Bring it on.
And just in case you missed it, check out the text from their tour T-shirt below (in all caps, because of course it is):
"I AM WATERPARKS TRASH. I CAN’T BELIEVE ‘ENTERTAINMENT’ HAS ONLY BEEN OUT A YEAR, FEELS LIKE IT CAME OUT FOREVER AGO. EITHER WAY I’M SO EXCITED TO HEAR ‘FRIENDLY REMINDER’. IT’S PROBABLY GONNA BE ANGRY. IF ‘NOISE’, ‘LEMONADE’, AND ‘GLITTER TIMES’ ARE ON IT I’M GONNA FREAK OUT. UGH. I’M SO CURIOUS TO SEE WHAT COLOR AWSTEN DYES HIS HAIR. RED HAIR AWSTEN WILL RISE. I HOPE GEOFF HAS ANOTHER SOLO.
EITHER WAY AWSTEN IS STILL PROBLEMATIC AND A BIG POSER. I’M JUST HERE FOR OTTOPARKS. MY WIG FLIES FIRST CLASS WITH NO SEATBELT TO VENUS FOR OTTOPARKS. I HOPE THEY PLAY ‘CRAVE’. I WONDER IF IT’S GONNA BE OFF THE SET WHEN THE NEW ALBUM COMES OUT. I’LL THROW HANDS IDC.
THE TOUR MERCH IS SO CUTE THIS TIME. YAS JUST TAKE MY MONEY. AND YES I AM FULLY PREPARED TO YELL AT THEM FOR ONLY PLAYING SIX SONGS DESPITE THE FACT THAT THEY’RE NOT HEADLINING, DON’T CARE. NOT MY PROBLEM. GEOFF IS CUTE."
