Watch Waterparks perform Numb live for the first time
Before releasing the single (or snazzy official music video) the Texan trio surprised fans by performing the Greatest Hits single live for the first time during their March 27 livestream show, frontman Awsten Knight yelling to the camera, “It’s new shit, it’s new shit! You’re about to hear some new shit!” as they launched into it.
Numb is taken from Waterparks’ upcoming fourth album Greatest Hits, which is due out on May 21 via 300 Entertainment.
Speaking to Kerrang! in January about what fans can expect to hear following FANDOM, Awsten enthused, “I’m glad we’ve set the bar and the expectation of, ‘Hey, we’re going to make all kinds of weird shit, and shit that you’re not going to expect.’ We’ve opened the door to be able to do anything, and my only hope is that people don’t go into it expecting too much of one thing, because they will never, ever, ever be right. Here’s the thing: I know it’s great, and I hope they’re willing to just take it in as music and not, ‘This is what I want from Waterparks.’
“As long as the approach is to appreciate it and hear it for what it is then I think they’re gonna fucking love it.”
