Waterparks is going on tour opening for ONE OK ROCK starting today. The band Waterparks just released another merchandise for the tour, and fans are going wild for it. Some love it, some don’t. Either way, it is brilliant with a message that Waterparks fans would express. Check it out below.
Make sure to check out Waterparks on the tour! You can get your tickets here.
I am late on this but I still wanted to share my top music picks from January!
This last month has been a definite roller coaster for me. Going back to school after almost a long month break was for sure something I had not been looking forward to. But thanks to a change in life goals, the term has been not so bad. Of course, I would like to thank music, especially some particular tracks, that have been there for me during this January ride. So let’s get right to it!
Many of us have crushes, duh, and when we tend to have these crushes, we say to ourselves that we would do so much to be with that peson. I am not saying that I had a crush on someone this last month (or did I?), but this specific song is catchy and gives me the feelings of wanting to be there for someone. “I’ll Always Be Around” by Waterparks is the song I am talking about. Whenever I hear this song – it has been on repeat for most of the month – all I can think about is that feeling where you’re ready to be with a person. It’s exciting!
January 16th was an amazing day for The Maine fans (me being one of them). Their newest single “Numb Without You” was released that day and oh boy is it something! One of my favorite parts of the song is when John expresses, “You’re every fucking thing inside me now.” This person he sings about is very important to him. They make them feel alive and whole. The song in general has strong emotions and lyrics that a listener could relate to. It shows that being without someone who has impacted you can make you feel empty inside. Also this track has a different sound to their previous work, but fans still love it, and so do I.
There is a song that I absolutely love playing in the car so that I can dance to in my seat. It’s fun, it’s catchy, it’s entertaining. “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME” by The 1975 is this song. I try not to get into the lyrics to this song too much, I mainly just want to sing along and dance. That’s it, that simple. Moving on.
The last song I will mention is “Freakin’ Me Out” by The Ready Set. A song from five years ago and when I listen to it, it is as if it just came out. I’m excited about it and all I want to do is sing at the top of my lungs. What this song does to me when I listen to it every time is remind me of one of the first Warped Tours I attended. The Ready Set’s album The Bad & The Better had come out right before Warped Tour and he was going to play some of the songs from this album. Now I do not quite remember whether or not this song was played, but it was from that era, so good memories definitely come from this song. It is a nice way to just sit there (and move around a bit) and remember the good old days of Vans Warped Tour.
Check out the playlist below from my Spotify with the above songs and other songs I have been enjoying this past month. Leave a comment if you wish with songs you have been listening to on repeat lately. Enjoy!
We all have our favorite time of year whether it is a holiday, sports season, vacation time, etc. For me, it is right now when many bands announce that they are going on tour and they release the dates usually at the same time. It has always been the same routine for me every single year since about sophomore year of high school. Summer was great, I got to attend Vans Warped Tour yet again. It is now the end of summer and I am definitely not crying while I reminsce about my day(s) at Warped (yeah right!). I’m getting ready for school to begin once again – I have my new clothes, some of which are new band tees, and supplies – I am ready, but not too excited.
I’m scrolling through my Instagram feed and suddenly see the first of many tour announcements that will be taking place during the week or two. Then there’s another. And another. And yet again, another! I am beyond excited and worried because I really want to go out and see my favorites live but I also need to figure out a way to ask my mom for permission. I’m 22 but she treasts me as if I’m still 14 (it’s all good I guess).
It’s one announcement after another. I see it on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and I also get some bands’ tweets sent to my phone, so everything is blowing up with new upcoming tours! I’m exctied to see bands for the first time or the fourth time – it never gets old.
If you are planning on attending at least one upcoming show, I hope you have so much fun! And if you are not for whatever reason, there is always next time. Concerts are not going away.
Check out some of the tours coming up below!
Vans Warped Tour is about halfway through on their very last full cross country tour. If you have already attended, I hope you had a blast! Maybe you’ve made some new friends. Maybe you got to see all of your favorite bands. And better yet, maybe you met your favorite bands! Now to those of you who have not attended yet but your date is coming up, know that there is a lot of waiting around sometimes. So what do you do during the few hours of nothing to do? Well, here’s a run down of about what your day will look like with things to do to keep you occupied:
You’ve definitely either bought your schedule/map for $2 or you have taken a picture of the inflatable schedule once you have entered the venue. Next, you have gone to your favorite bands’ tents to check their meet and greet times and anything else they have going on. You already know that you should probably get in the meet and greet lines about 30 – 60 minutes ahead of the start time. Then, once you’re done with most things you were wanting to do, the next band may or may not play until way later.
What you could do while you wait is definitely check out the PETA tent to get some free goodies/stickers. PETA also has a tent where you can watch a four minute video. What do you get out of that? You learn what PETA’s about and you earn $1! Another thing you can do is check out the TRUTH truck. They have a live DJ playing some awesome tunes, lots of games, free merch that you can get, and even more! Head Count is also there. What you can do with them is register to vote. Let’s be the future that makes a positive change. Also, keep your phone charged all day with Electric Standard Co. Once your charger is dead, go back to the tent all day long to pick up a new fully charged one. Go to the Monster Mutant truck as well and get yourself a free super soda. You will not regret it! The last thing that will be mentioned, although there are so many more things to do, is go to the FEND Movement tent. FEND is all about being against opioid addiction. If you download the app, you have a chance to go to a private acoustic We The Kings or Waterparks set. How exciting!
So if you still have not attended your Warped Tour date and may have been wondering what exactly you should do to completely fill your day, well now you have some things that can make your day full of fun. Enjoy your day and make this last one count!
This will give you the feels. Be prepared!
