Fandom (stylized in all caps) is the third studio album by American pop rock band Waterparks, released on October 11, 2019. It is the band's first and only release through Hopeless Records and was produced by Zakk Cervin. The album debuted at number 32 on the Billboard 200 and number 52 in the UK, spawning six singles: "Turbulent", "Watch What Happens Next", "Dream Boy", "[Reboot]", "High Definition" and "Easy to Hate".

Themes and composition[edit]

Musically, Fandom has been described as pop rock, alternative pop, rock, electropop, and pop punk, with elements of hip hop. Lyrically, the album focuses on fan expectations and pressure. Talking about the album's themes, Wall of Sound stated, "[the album] goes through stages of having written about the fandom directly and the pressures of being looked up to and the issues that have been noticed...to being about a very hard breakup and mental health struggles that comes with everything in general, as well as the topics being spoken about."[1]

On May 23, 2019, the band released their first single off of their upcoming album, "Turbulent" and announced that they got signed to Hopeless Records.[2][7] On August 12, 2019, the band released the second single, "Watch What Happens Next" along with a music video and the announcement of the album to be released on October 11, 2019.[8] On August 16, 2019, the band released their third single, "Dream Boy," along with a music video.[9] On September 12, 2019, the fourth single, "[Reboot]" was released.

Reception[edit]

Fandom was generally well-received by critics. In his review, Jack Rogers of Rock Sound called the album "one of the year's most fascinating, ferocious and fanatical albums". Jamie MacMillan of Dork gave the album four stars out of five, describing it as "edgy, exciting, and another nail in the coffin of boring genre restraints", calling it the band's best work to date. Jo Cosgrove of Discovered Magazine gave the album a rating of 9.5/10, stating that "Fandom is a very fun, very bouncy, party-perfect album. But to the right listeners, a fifteen-track confession on why fame and celebrity isn’t as fun as it looks. Or sounds."
