We at Blocland are currently sitting at prime Pageant anticipation mode. It’s like we can’t shut up about them, right? Right?!? PWR BTTM were gracious enough to release another single off the upcoming album that absolutely feeds right into the Blocland hype machine. A very fine tuned machine, as you know. I’m happy to report that “LOL” is just as addictive and wrapped in rock’s essence as everything else we’ve heard from Pageant. It’s also great to hear the band stepping out of their comfort zone a bit. The track notably features the opera singer and mother to Bean Hopkins, Christiane Hopkins. How fucking endearing. The track also features vocals from Alynda Segarra of Hurray For the Riff Raff that add a nice country twang. Listen below via Spotify because you’re just as excited as we are.

Pageant is out 5/12. Pre-order from Poly Vinyl

      It’s very good. I was underwhelmed on first listen, but damn, those hooks are sneaky. Fantastic by the fourth listen despite a few duds.

  • Saul_Wright

    woah woah woah, I was already hyped for this and now you’re throwin Hurray For the Riff Raff in there?!

    • lobster man

      HFRR is cool but did you miss the part about Hopkins’ mom?

      • Saul_Wright

        Moms are cool, too.

  • Blochead4real

    We’ve talked about these people more than Arca.

    • lobster man

      We’ve also talked about them more than Pallbearer if that makes you feel better.
      I could go for an Arca review. Someone should get on that.
