Waterparks have debuted their very first studio diary for Entertainment, and it’s making us even more excited for their new record.

“We started writing this record, technically, before Double Dare,” Knight explains. “I’ll have, say, a chorus idea. If it sticks with me through a zillion other ideas and that one still keeps coming back, then I need to go explore it.”

Good ol’ Otto Wood says that it’s hard for him to pick one reason why he’s excited for this album, but in the words of Awsten, it’s because “it’s the best album” and it’s the “only album that matters.”

Which is true, honestly. Knight goes on to explain that it’s “the next version of everything” and the songs “sound bigger” than what they've previously released. “It’s the best version of what we could possibly be doing,” Knight explains.

And we couldn’t be more excited! Watch the first 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 as part of the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour.
