- Waterparks Premiere New Video “Dream Boy”; New Album ‘Fandom’ Out
August 28TH, 2019 – Singapore – Waterparks have shared the new music video for “Dream Boy” from the upcoming album, ‘FANDOM’, out October 11, 2019. Fans can watch the video here: smarturl.it/dreamboyvideo
Awsten Knight directed the surreal and vibey visual, making this his second directorial effort. In reference to the meaning behind this song, the Waterparks frontman says, “Dream Boy is about fan expectations and feeling like I’m constantly being built up into someone/something I can never live up to, which will eventually lead to everyone being disappointed.”
‘FANDOM’, the third full-length from Waterparks (and first on Hopeless Records), and produced by Zakk Cervini (Poppy, Yungblud, nothing, nowhere), is a colorful, diverse, and enigmatic collection of songs that includes the previously released, “Watch What Happens Next” and the tornado-like, “Turbulent” released in late May.
