Metronomy

Metronomy have sold out their March 30 show at Irving Plaza and have added a second show at the venue the night before (3/29) with Friends opening for both shows. Tickets for the new show go on sale tomorrow (2/29) at 10am. The band's headline tour wraps up with a performance at Coachella, and immediately after they are going to open West Coast dates of Coldplay's North American tour. Say hi to Apple!

Meanwhile, Metronomy's The English Riviera - The Unreleased Remixes comes out next week on iTunes and there are some really great versions on there, like Clock Opera's radical reworking of "The Bay" which basically turns it into a new song. (Clock Opera play the BV-presented show at Santos on 3/12 with Django Django and Charli XCX, btw.) You can stream that remix and Two Inch Punch's "Shook Shook Refix" of "The Look" at the bottom of this post, which is also where all Metronomy tour dates can be found.

No chicks believe dude on far right is actually in a band. Strikes out every night, never gets tail, practices his instrument (joywhistle) lots...alone.

3 nights in LA, not surprised. Those d-bags eat sh!t like this (in a low-carb wrap w/ avocado slices) for breakfast.

looks like the photo was from '92.

Do those hipsters know that there's a black man behind them?

Posted by Anonymous | February 28, 2012 3:37 PM

Metronomy is actually a great live band and "The English Riviera" was one of the best albums of 2k11 IMO. Not sure why they insist on getting involved with Friends and Coldplay though.

^What's up with all these racist ass comments on here? You people should be ashamed of yourselves, even if you are being ironic.

Fat dude on the right is looking at the camera because he thought he heard someone behind the lens mention Billyburger. Hipsters.......(smh)

3:43 is a moron

Posted by Anonymous | February 28, 2012 3:59 PM

3:43 - Everyone in this "band" is being equally discriminated against...especially the chubby lad with the funny haircut. Btw, fat dudes are more enjoyable when they smile.

Fat bro from Friends needs to form a band with the fat bro from Metronomy.

This band looks like the result of a focus group.

Posted by Anonymous | February 28, 2012 5:33 PM

3:43, whether you like Coldplay or not, opening for them is going to expose metronomy to a lot of people.

Posted by Anonymous | February 28, 2012 5:49 PM

RAD photo, fuck these haters.

They just want to see some Ray-Bans, beards, face paint and some stuff projected onto the band. Because that would be apparently be something called amazeballs.

Posted by Robin | February 28, 2012 6:22 PM

I must say that is some brilliant in between coachellas booking...couldn't have worked out better for them...nice one!

fuck these nerds!

Metronomy is a really good band. Way to go BV posters for ripping on them and picking on them for how they look. 'Cos we all know BV posters are sooooooo good looking and perfect.

I don't look like fucking Erkel, so STFU 7:44

Posted by Anonymous | February 28, 2012 10:15 PM

Fuck that noise 7:44, if you purposely make yourself look like a holier-than-thou hipster asshole, you shall get ripped apart on BV for doing so. Fuck their 'image' and suck dong for defending them.

Brooklyn Vegan Comments Section:

Make racist, sexist, and/or homophobic comments while hiding behind irony or humor. Backpeddle and say you're discriminating against all band members because of how misanthropic you are. Age ten years, lose hair, stop smoking pot, drop pretenses of Libertarianism and go full Republican.

Have fun at the Megadeth show, kids.

I only read comments to get the occasional hummus recipe. Anybody got one to share?

Posted by Anonymous | February 29, 2012 2:23 AM

I'll share a confession: I like hummus for like the first three or four pita triangle I plunge into it, and then I start questioning my judgement for having bought/made the stuff. This happens every time. Is there a support group out there for the hummus-conflicted?

I can't believe what a bunch of haters you all are. Passive aggressively generalizing over the internet. like, get real. Metronomy is a fucking PHENOMENAL band and I've heard that they're fantastic live (I want to see them live so bad!) And anyway, Joe Mount is one fine ass man. Look at those fucking curls, and his eyes, and lips...and unf. Plus Gbenga ('the black guy') is a badass bass player. God, you're all a bunch of pricks.

Posted by Lucy | March 9, 2012 7:08 AM

They suck, and if you like them you suck too.

Can you email me with some pointers on how you made your site look this awesome, I would appreciate it.
