Waterparks have shared their second studio diary for Entertainment, and let's just say we're ready to grab a tissue box for our first listen of the record…
“When I did the demo for 'Crybaby,' the demo vocals are actually the vocals you're going to hear in the final version,” Awsten Knight explains. “That was actually one of the worst fucking days ever.”
Knight goes on to say that the sadness of the song was captured in the demo vocals, and that's why they stuck with it. “Courtney [Ballard], the guy we're recording with, he heard it and was like, 'These have a really cool vibe, I don't know what it is,'” Knight says, “I was like, 'It's sadness, Courtney. It's fucking sadness.'”

We're ready to give the song a listen—with tissues in tow, of course. Watch the second studio diary below:
The band's new album is set to be released January 26 of next year, and when talking to frontman Awsten Knight about their new record, it sounds like there's plenty to look forward to.
“I never, ever, wanted to make the same thing twice,” Knight shares. “I’ve showed friends demos and everyone’s like, 'This is such a next step.' There’s a very clear growth.”
And we can't wait to hear what they have in store with Entertainment.
Plus, the band will be headed out on tour this fall with As It Is, Chapel and Sleep On It. Excitingly enough, this is Waterparks’ biggest tour to date, and after winning Best Breakthrough Artist at the 2017 APMAs, we can’t wait to see them hit the stage this fall.
