Our brand new cover star Waterparks frontman Awsten Knight joined us on the Rock Sound Podcast recently to tell all about his Rock Sound cover shoot with As It Is' Patty Walters and what it meant to him.
Here are the highlights...
ON THE COVER... "I saw the mock up and was like, 'Fuck yeah!'"
ON THE SHOOT... "It was cool doing the shoot with Patty. This sounds goofy to say, but I guess we've both done enough photo shoot type things at this point that you know what to do and how to semi-be.
"So we can fuck around and it was fun but sometimes you take pictures of people and they're like, 'I don't know where to put my hands!' and it wasn't like that so that was pretty cool, it was fun and it was easy, it was like, 'Oh we're here, just fucking around!'"
ON PATTY... "He talked about how when he was younger in school, there wasn't really much of an anti-drug thing or teaching of why stuff like that is bad.
"He was basically saying it was almost like, 'Hey, this where you get all this stuff! Blah, blah, blah'.
"It was almost like enabling or normalising it and how he wanted to openly have an anti-drug thing when he was older and I thought that was cool because that's sort of not a thing much nowadays...
"It's cool to have people who are vocally trying to counter that, having a good influence from a singer in this scene."
