New York-based power queerpunk duo PWR BTTM are back with the much anticipated successor to their excellent 2015 full length debut Ugly Cherries. Pageant is a collection of 13 tracks that fully showcase the band's contagious energy, and of which joy is a constant element.

Glam and pop-punkish, the geniality of the LP resides on its apparent effortlessness combined with hymn-like songs, which carry a sweet-and-sour undertone while never losing a sense of humour. Pageant has everything to become one of your favourite albums of this spring, and although it's set to drop only on May 12 (via Polyvinyl) you can stream it right now in advance of its release.
