It still isn’t confirmed who the new record label is, or if the band simply stayed with Equal Vision Records. Either way, fans are eagerly waiting to find out who will be putting out the next Waterparks album.
The last news of fresh music from Waterparks were inspired by Slam Dunk Festival a few weeks ago, where they teased a possible new song at their upcoming set.
A very cryptic and confusing tweet posted by the band last month ignited theories consisting of constellations and fruit bowls.
Waterparks then dropped a new tweet that looked more like one of those math equations we all dreaded.
“17 [R] 5 / S7PM F 2+” the band tweets following by the tangerine emoji and the link to Slam Dunk Music Festival.
The band also included a very short video that fans immediately recognized as the alleged song “Turbulent.”

Are Waterparks playing “Turbulent” at Slam Dunk?
Slam Dunk takes place Saturday, May 25 in Leeds and Sunday, May 26 in Hatfield where Waterparks are set to play the Monster Energy stage.
Hopefully the new record deal will lead to an album sooner rather than later, but fans will be anxiously awaiting more news to come.
