Waterparks and blackbear have released their new track “FUCK ABOUT IT” via Fueled by Ramen today. Arriving in the wake of the Nothing Matters cross country tour, the track packages Waterparks’ incendiary stage presence into an infectious anthem that will blast you right out of any seasonal (or otherwise) blues with a tale of a dysfunctional relationship. Listen to the song now below.
Within the new song, Waterparks and blackbear sing about the extreme way of communicating, in this particular hot & cold relationship. “FUCK ABOUT IT” marks the first time the two iconic artists have come together.
It’s been a busy time for Waterparks, who have released a string of tracks in the midst of various global tour dates. Most recently, the trio’s electric single “SELF-SABOTAGE” was given a fresh take with a collaboration featuring Good Charlotte. The track also received a dance remix from MCD4. The original track exhibits spirited vocals and an infectiously cheerful guitar riff that perfectly contrasts with the diary-esque lyrics, which visualize Awsten’s self-imposed restrictions.
“SELF-SABOTAGE” followed up Waterparks Fueled by Ramen debut “FUNERAL GREY” and marked the trio continuing into their newest era. This era sees Waterparks 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 2MM 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.
