Waterparks may have just played themselves. After the band released a tour shirt playfully mocking their fans, they may have unveiled the title of their forthcoming record, along with the names of a few songs.
On the T-shirt, it looks as though the album title could be called Friendly Reminder.
Check out what the shirt says below. We even transcribed it in all caps to emulate frontman, Awsten 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. I WONDER IF IT’S GONNA BE OFF THE SET WHEN THE NEW ALBUM COMES OUT. I’LL THROW HANDS IDC. THE TOUR MERCH IS SO CUTE THIS TIME, YAS JUST TAKE MY MONEY. AND YES I AM FULLY PREPARED TO YELL AT THEM FOR ONLY PLAYING 6 SONGS DESPITE THE FACT THAT THEY’RE NOT HEADLINING, DON’T CARE. NOT MY PROBLEM. GEOFF IS CUTE.”

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.
However, as much as we would love to believe every word on this shirt, the mockery in question stems from months of fan-made theories. That said, the design is meant to poke fun at the fandom, who have wasted no time coming up with Waterparks-related conspiracies — especially about the forthcoming album. Check out a few of the theories below.
Here’s your friendly reminder to watch @waterparks new music video for “Not Warriors/Crybaby” at LEAST 10 times today 📼

do you ever just stop to think about how each @waterparks album is in alphabetical order? like first we started at A for Airplane Conversations, then Black Light, Cluster, DD and we’ve made it to E for Entertainment plus next we’re going to possibly get F for Friendly Reminder???

We’ve all been hating on awsten for doing the stupid hand thing when… it’s sign language for F pic.twitter.com/2AwioDel9d
