PWR BTTM's anticipated sophomore album (and first for Polyvinyl), Pageant, comes out next week (5/12) but now the whole thing is streaming. "Answer My Text" has already become something of an underground pop punk anthem, and Pageant is full of songs that hit in exactly the same way. Musically, PWR BTTM pull from bright '90s pop punk but they keep things less polished than their predecessors did. And lyrically, PWR BTTM put queerness in the forefront and manage to speak to a generation of kids who need a band like this. You can and should stream the album below (via NPR).
PWR BTTM's tour includes an upcoming show at NYC's Webster Hall on June 21, which is sold out.
