After Waterparks singer Awsten Knight challenged fans to get his tweet 20,000 retweets today in exchange for a new album, they’ve delivered on that promise. Sort of.

The band are releasing a collection of demo tracks for 1 (A COLLECTION OF UNRELEASED HOME DEMOS, THIS IS NOT G, OR EVEN AN ALBUM, SHUT UP ENJOY) on SoundCloud which you can stream now.

The original tweet that led to this release was a bold decision given their rabid fanbase.

After the tweet started pulling in numbers, the band seems to have noticed they were going to hit their goal.

Then they really did hit 20,000 retweets and the wait began for the “album drop.”

Waterparks really did drop something new too which you can listen to below. Notably, the track “LIFE IS PUKE” features Knight discussing the tweet reaching 20,000 retweets and checking Drake’s Twitter account to see if he gets as many retweets (he does not).

“Ok so you guys are assholes. I did not think this was going to get 20,000 and everyone is so mad at me. I hope you guys like this shit at least a little bit,” he says. “Maybe Drake gets 20,000 retweets? I’m going to go look at Drake’s Twitter. Why can’t I find it, ah, Drizzy I’m sorry. Yo, straight up, Drake doesn’t even get 20,000 retweets this is crazy.”
