Pwr Bttm, stylized PWR BTTM (pronounced Power Bottom) are an American queer punk duo formed in 2013 at Bard College by Liv Bruce and Ben Hopkins. The duo's debut album, Ugly Cherries, was released in 2015. Their second studio album, Pageant, was released in 2017 to critical acclaim. Pageant's release was preceded by sexual abuse allegations against Ben Hopkins, which led to the duo being dropped by both Polyvinyl and Big Scary Monsters. PWR BTTM has denied the allegations.
I know that I'm always wrong Laughing at me, you were laughing along I didn't know you could take such a shape.
Pageant was set to be PWR BTTM’s second album, and it was originally planned for to be released on May 12, 2017. It’s release was preceded by four singles: Projection, New Hampshire, Big Beautiful Day, and Answer My Text ; only the latter two appeared on the final tracklist of the album. On May 10th, 2017, allegations were raised against band member Ben Hopkins, accusing them of sexual assault. The backlash against the band was swift and powerful.
No amount of perma-teenage angst can dim PWR BTTM’s light, and by owning the hard work it takes to love yourself and others, particularly as a queer person, they celebrate the beauty and value of our lives.

Fundamentally, their sound is still the same garage punk style that defined that album, but they’ve recruited an army of horns, strings, flutes, and vocalists (including Ben Hopkins’ mother, operatic soprano Chris Hopkins) to enhance that sound. And they utilize those new elements expertly, crafting the music to convey both directly and subtly the emotions that complement each song’s lyrical themes.
Pageant is the second studio album by American queer punk duo PWR BTTM.
