Me Talk Pretty lights the fuse on a highly combustible catalog of heavy rock hits, rousing fans to rise and congregate beside pulsating amplifiers during the fully charged Wake Up! tour. Led by the unrestrained vocals of lead singer Uliana Preotu, MTP has begun to burrow itself into the ears of rock enthusiasts in support of its debut EP, We Are Strangers. Past appearances alongside seasoned rockers Filter and Taproot have contributed to a face-melting epidemic across the U.S., and the quartet's fervid mantra, "Wake Up!", has reared its head in popular videogames and on the MP3 players of sleep-deprived roosters. The ethereal guitar crunch of Madina Lake and shredded screams of post-punkers Hawthorne Heights add to the evening's aural onslaught, and heavy up-and-comers Get Scared, Krash Rover, and Drater help further warm up headbangers with fiery sets and venue-wide calisthenics.
