Meet Me @ the Altar is transforming the pop-punk landscape – and they don’t need Travis Barker’s help. On debut full-length Past // Present // Future, the femme trio of color channels Warped Tour and Avril Lavigne to breathe new life into an old-head genre. Opener “Say It (to My Face)” demonstrates the Fueled by Ramen signees’ mastery of pop-rock earworms, while “Kool” spins playfully reminiscent of Radio Disney. After performing at nostalgia fest When We Were Young and bagging a Taco Bell commercial placement, these rising rockers might even land at a stadium. For their inaugural headlining tour, however, Antone’s will do.
