Waterparks have been doing all sorts of teasing lately, and have now confirmed that PARX5 – aka their fifth album – is currently "80 per cent done".

Taking to social media, the Texas trio share that they've got a lot of new material to whittle down for their next record, and are currently working with 55 songs that run for a total time of two hours and 23 minutes. (Of course, Awsten Knight had worked on "a hundred-something songs" during the pandemic before settling on the 17 that make up 2021 album Greatest Hits, so it's very unlikely that we'll actually get to hear all 55 sadly.)

Over on his Instagram stories, the frontman wrote of this new material, "Can't even describe how good this shit is," and said that song number 54 out of 55 was his "current fave". He also tweeted that the band "need more friends on this album", with phem and Against The Current's Chrissy Costanza throwing their hats in the ring in the replies. We're very excited to see how this all plays out…
