Waterparks have just released the music video for current single, ‘SELF-SABOTAGE’.
Directed by Erik Rojas, the ‘SELF-SABOTAGE’ visual is a cinematic display of the group’s day to day life on tour, featuring footage from the band’s recent show at the O2 Academy Brixton in London. Accented with vivid hues of colour, the anthem’s snappy guitars and fuzzy electronics underline the manically catchy hook highlighted by Awsten’s wild sky-high register. The spirited vocals and infectiously cheerful guitar riff perfectly contrast with the diary-esque lyrics that detail Awsten’s self-imposed restrictions. ‘SELF-SABOTAGE’ is yet another illustration of the trio’s uncanny knack for the unpredictable.
Speaking of the video, director Rojas says, “I loved collaborating with Awsten and Jawn (Rocha) on this one. The Waterparks live experience is so high energy and unique, and capturing its beautiful chaos for this video felt like the perfect visual pairing for SELF-SABOTAGE”
Following up Waterparks’ Fueled By Ramen debut single, ‘FUNERAL GREY,’ the trio continues their new era. An era that sees the band step into a more mature sound and look, elevating the image and sonics that have already accumulated over half a billion career streams to date, with over 2M monthly listeners and 400,000 Spotify followers. Their last album, Greatest Hits, debuted with over 15,000 album-unit equivalents in the US, earning it the no. 5 spot on Billboard’s Alt/Rock chart.
UPCOMING TOUR DATES:
In addition to US shows with My Chemical Romance and blackbear in the next couple of months, the trio return to the UK in February 2023, as special guests to You Me At Six. A full list of dates can be found HERE
