The Waterparks fan theories have kicked into high gear after the band released a teaser on social media that’s cryptic AF.
Could we be getting a new Waterparks song on Saturday? Or will we be watching Awsten Knight drink orange juice at 7 P.M. on a Saturday night? When it comes to Waterparks, anything is possible.
Back in February, the band released a tour shirt playfully mocking their fans while potentially unveiling the title of their forthcoming record.
Just a few short days ago, frontman Awsten Knight played into the shirt theory by dying his hair red, leaving fans to wonder if the next Waterparks era was finally upon us.
“RED HAIR AWSTEN WILL RISE.”
Now, the band have taken to social media to share a cryptic post with social text that simply contains the orange emoji.
The image in the post says, “Saturday 7PM.”
Which Saturday? Are we getting a new song? Could this be the announcement for the next era of Waterparks?
The fan theories have kicked into overdrive with the unveiling of this cryptic post, some more serious than others.
awsten: *dyes his hair red*

Fans were also quick to point out that Awsten shared a photo on Instagram back in May of him drinking orange juice with the caption, “SATURDAY 7PM.”

In case you need a refresher, check out what the tour shirt says below. We even transcribed it in all caps to emulate frontman Knight’s Twitter presence:
“I AM WATERPARKS TRASH. I CAN’T BELIEVE ENTERTAINMENT HAS ONLY BEEN OUT A YEAR, FEELS LIKE IT CAME OUT FOREVER AGO. EITHER WAY I’M SO EXCITED TO HEAR FRIENDLY REMINDER. IT’S PROBABLY GONNA BE ANGRY. IF “NOISE,” “LEMONADE” AND “GLITTER TIMES” ARE ON IT I’M GONNA FREAK OUT. UGH. I’M SO CURIOUS TO SEE WHAT COLOR AWSTEN DYES HIS HAIR. RED HAIR AWSTEN WILL RISE. I HOPE GEOFF HAS ANOTHER SOLO.
EITHER WAY AWSTEN IS STILL PROBLEMATIC AND A BIG POSER. I’M JUST HERE FOR OTTOPARKS. MY WIG FLIES FIRST CLASS WITH NO SEATBELT TO VENUS FOR OTTOPARKS. I HOPE THEY PLAY CRAVE.

In addition to the potential album title, the songs listed on the T-shirt have not yet been officially released. According to a tweet, the song “Noise” was actually leaked in one of Knight’s Instagram Lives.
As for “Lemonade” and “Glitter Times,” fans speculate that they may appear on the forthcoming album.
During the night of the band’s L.A. show, red hair Awsten DID rise.
