Due to popular demand, Metronomy today announce two further lives shows this October. The two additional shows will take place in Birmingham and Brighton and pre-sale tickets will go on-sale this Wednesday 26th July from http://metronomy.seetickets.com/tour/metronomy, with general sale tickets on-sale on Friday 28th July from gigst.rs/MAP
The quintet returned to the live arena earlier this year after a planned break from touring of nearly two years, with a string of live dates which included a triumphant and victorious sold-out show at London’s Brixton Academy, an incendiary headline set at Glastonbury’s John Peel stage, a jubilant main stage performance at Primavera Sound (supporting Arcade Fire) and more recently, an emotional headline performance at the last ever Secret Garden Party this weekend, plus a headline set at Tramlines Festival yesterday.
Still to come are appearances at On Blackheath festival (Greenwich), Simple Things Festival (Bristol, headline), By The Sea festival (Margate, headline) plus Brighton and Birmingham headline shows. At Simple Things Metronomy will open the festival as stand alone headliners.
The band will also tour the US in November with dates in New York, LA, San Fran, Miami and Mexico.
Joe Mount will perform with the full band set up to include Oscar Cash (keys/sax), Gbenga Adelekan (bass), Anna Prior (drums) and Michael Lovett (keys/guitar).
2016 saw the release of Metronomy’s fifth album ‘Summer 08’; a studio album recorded by Joe Mount and not toured live. With a blend of reflective lyricism and forward-thinking sonics, the album inspired fans and critics alike. Most recently Joe appears on the September cover of Notion magazine who call him ‘The Innovator’ and ‘one of the most likeable and relevant voices in the industry today’.
Entirely written, played and produced by Mount himself, ‘Summer 08’ finds the multi-instrumentalist reflecting on his experiences around the time that Metronomy first landed a major breakthrough with the ‘Nights Out’ album – the guilt at spending key moments in loved ones’ lives in the back of a tour bus, and the confused mania of finding himself a critical darling. The result is an album that reiterates why influential fans such as Kanye West, Tyler The Creator, Lady Gaga, Daft Punk and Josh Homme have all fallen under Metronomy’s spell.
