Genre-bending pop/rock trio Waterparks have announced their debut Australian headline tour for October in support of their brand new studio album INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, out now on Fueled By Ramen. Joining the band on all dates will be special guests Lights, for her FIRST EVER TIME in the country.
In his latest exclusive cover interview with Alternative Press, Knight gave fans an insight of the new record and its thematic inspiration. The frog on the cover of the LP has a poignant meaning to Knight, as it signifies him grappling with religious guilt.
In the article, he revealed, “Frogs have always been one of my favorite animals. However, when I learned that frogs were seen as dirty and unclean in a biblical context, it was interesting to me that something that I saw as so good, natural and beautiful could also be seen as a bad thing through a biblical lens. Growing up in church, you’re taught that everything is so wrong and bad. I always felt like shit, so [this album] is the breakaway from that specifically.”
