Waterparks debut a brand new single and video, ‘Just Kidding‘, from their forthcoming album, Greatest Hits, out May 21st via 300 Entertainment.
‘Just Kidding’ is a stripped down, personal track that puts Awsten’s bold vocals on display alongside a deftly-produced beat and very honest lyrics. The captivating and simplistic video was directed by Jawn Rocha & Awsten Knight.
‘Just Kidding’ is the follow up to the recently released ‘You’d Be Paranoid Too (If Everyone Was Out To Get You)‘, ‘Numb‘ and the Daft Punk-esque ‘Snow Globe‘.
The trio recently announced a series of special UK album release shows to celebrate the release of ‘Greatest Hits’, around their appearances at the Slam Dunk Festivals. Full dates below:

Most bands wouldn’t name their new album Greatest Hits. Waterparks aren’t most bands. The Houston, trio—Awsten Knight, Otto Wood, and Geoff Wigington —are just ballsy and bold enough to pull off calling their fourth album, Greatest Hits [300 Entertainment], and actually deliver on the promise of that moniker. See, the boys continually rewrite the rules for what a band can do in the 21st century.
While the death of the Rockstar was lamented time and time again, they quietly emerged as a new school genre-pillaging phenomenon in an old school way: by busting their asses in the studio and on the road.
