Meet Me @ the Altar will release their new EP, Model Citizen, on August 13th.
We know how important it is for young people especially, to see people like them doing something that they might want to do. We like being there for all the little girls that don’t really have anyone to look up to in the rock scene. We had Paramore [and] Halsey. That’s about it. We wish we had someone of color to look up to in the scene and we’re that for a lot of other people, which is so important to us. That’s one of the main reasons why we have tried hard to be successful. With Fueled, we are getting a platform to spread these messages that we feel like a lot of people would like to hear.
”Them coming together through YouTube Fueled By Ramen covers felt very serendipitous,” Minardi says. “Every time I would have a conversation with them, they would tell me a tidbit about their biggest inspirations or doing drum covers of Paramore. I kept being like, ‘This is the most obvious thing in the world in the best way possible: To connect and go and try to take on the world together.'”
The week “Garden” was released, All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth and The Wonder Years’ Dan “Soupy” Campbell both reached out to Minardi to ask whether he’d signed the band yet. He told them he was working on it. “The band fits so much into the classic, vintage Fueled By Ramn sound, but is also moving it forward,” he says. “They add this mixture of other cool stuff, including these incredible breakdowns and melodies.”
Great signing. Great band.
They’ve also released a video for “Garden.”Read More “Meet Me @ The Altar Sign With Fueled by Ramen”
