Meet Me @ the Altar
Meet Me @ The Altar present a new musical and cultural paradigm for pop punk. The Florida-based trio— Edith Johnson [vocals], Téa Campbell [guitar], and Ada Juarez [drums]—write the kinds of anthems that you can scream along to at a festival, head-bang to in a club, or sit with while in your feelings at home. The women may have met via YouTube – in true modern-day fashion – but the band shares a classic mission. Flipping the script for rock music and its culture, they bring together elements of Warped Tour era punk, 2010s pop, and easycore. In 2020, early champions such as Halsey, Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low and Dan “Soupy” Campbell of The Wonder Years came forward as the trio inevitably inked a deal with Fueled By Ramen. On the heels of singles “Garden” and “Hit Like A Girl,” widespread tastemaker praise followed from The FADER, Rolling Stone, Nylon, and Stereogum. Meanwhile, Vulture predicted, “Meet Me @ The Altar make a convincing case that the future of pop-punk is Black, Latina, and female.” While amassing critical acclaim, they tirelessly wrote and recorded what would become their 2021 EP Model Citizen [Fueled By Ramen], set for arrival on August 13th.
