Awsten Knight says if ‘Greatest Hits’ hasn’t grown on you yet, it will

Waterparks are dropping hints that new music is on the way. On January 18, frontman Awsten Knight posted a link to a blank pre-save, identified in the link only as “tbd.”. Now, the band have posted a bright red image containing the word “ALRIGHT.” The post has invited speculation about whether the band are launching a new era, as well as about how soon we might expect something big from the band.

Awsten Knight teases new Waterparks music

Yesterday (January 17), Waterparks' Awsten Knight celebrated his 30th birthday by going to the DMV to renew his license (and updating his hilarious 2015 'naked' photo), but that's not all he got up to – the frontman also teased that new music is on the way. After sharing his...

Awsten Knight and Joel Madden have a low tolerance for boredom—watch

Given Waterparks’ discography, it would have been entirely acceptable and too easy for them to release a true-to-form greatest hits record composed of fan-favorite tracks. But rather than revisiting their previous accomplishments and restyling them, Waterparks’ fourth full-length, Greatest Hits, creates an encapsulating space that analyzes the perception of reality. While the trio wrote and recorded several tracks with Zakk Cervini ahead of the pandemic, which forced mass shutdowns in the music industry, Awsten Knight, Otto Wood and Geoff Wigington utilized their time off from touring to create what can only appropriately be described as their greatest hits.

Waterparks’ Awsten Knight: ​“If your art’s not getting a reaction, then what are you doing?”

“Hey, what do you think of this colour?” In typical Awsten Knight fashion, his interview with Kerrang! is not a straight-down-to-business affair. Before any talk of his band Waterparks or their new album Greatest Hits – out now via 300 Entertainment – comes close to being mentioned, the frontman talks K! through his latest choice of nail polish, before lighting a candle and pondering how he’s ​“never had a pedicure… I should do something about that!” Just five minutes prior he was on Waterparks’ Twitter account announcing a limited run of signed album copies, but in some ways, despite the buzz around Greatest Hits as release day approaches, he seems keen to separate himself from all the frenzy.

Waterparks’ Awsten Knight: “I wanted to make Greatest Hits sound more grand and expensive, and just massive…”

After a century-plus of music’s evolution, the concept of ‘originality’ has started to feel obsolete. If a sound exists, or has the potential to, trust that some agile producer has already found a way to make it bop in 4/4. In the 21st century, innovation is less about what you can invent than what you can do with the elements at your disposal. In recent years, we’ve seen death metal with horn sections, electronic ska, even classic rock written by artificial intelligence. Sometimes I wonder how John Lennon would’ve responded to dubstep.

In conversation with De’Wayne and Awsten Knight: ​“The rock scene should look like how the world looks – and that’s a lot of different people…”

Despite being best mates and touring buddies, De’Wayne describes asking Awsten Knight to guest on his new single Perfume as ​“like asking a girl on a date”. He was scared. “He hit me up and it was the funniest voice message,” the Waterparks frontman laughs of his friend’s adorably nervous...
