Waterparks is an American rock band from Houston, Texas, founded in 2011. The band consists of singer and bass guitarist Awsten Knight, lead guitarist Geoff Wigington and drummer _Otto Wood. The band's lyrics often focus on relationships and teenage life.
The band formed in 2011 when Knight and Wigington, who had played together in a previous band called "Island", joined Wood and began writing music together. The band took their name from a water park in Houston, Texas, where they had competed as swimmers in their youth. The band released their debut EP, Cluster in 2014, followed by their full-length album Double Dare in 2015.
Waterparks' sound has been described as a blend of punk rock, pop-punk and power pop. Their music often features humorous and relatable lyrics. The band's debut album, Double Dare, peaked at number 30 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart in the United States.
Waterparks has been compared to other pop-punk/pop-rock bands such as All Time Low, Panic! at the Disco and Mayday Parade. Other pop music acts such as The 1975 and Charli XCX have also been cited as influences.
Some of the band's most popular songs from their early years include "Dream Boy," "Stupid for You," "Royal," "Little Violence," and "Crave."
Since forming the band in 2011, Waterparks has grown in popularity, touring extensively in the United States and Europe and playing festivals such as South by Southwest and Riotfest in Chicago. The band has also received critical acclaim, with Rolling Stone noting that "the trio's effervescent pop-punk sound [...] puts a contemporary spin on genre classics like Blink-182".
