The backpack sparked theories of a “green era” for Parx, and judging by a recent post to the band’s Instagram story, those theories may not be too far off.
The band also switched over their socials to green-themed photos.
ZONE OUT EVERYTHING AROUND YOU, PUT YOUR PHONE DOWN, AND LISTEN LOUD.

Needless to say, the debut of “Turbulent” was well worth the wait.
Check out the incredible new Waterparks track below!
You can watch the visualizer below!
Recently, fans speculated that the new song would be unveiled during the band’s performance at Slam Dunk Festival this weekend.
Waterparks dropped a tweet that looked more like one of those math equations that fans deciphered as a hint to the new track.
“17 [R] 5 / S7PM F 2+” the tweet reads, followed 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.”
Obviously, we’ve been blessed with the track before the band’s Slam Dunk performance, so does that mean we’ll get the live debut this weekend?
We really hope so!
