Metronomy return to the live arena with seven brand new dates scheduled for May and July 2017. The headline shows will take place across the UK in Glasgow, Manchester and London followed by festival appearances in Liverpool, Winchester, Huntingdon and Sheffield. 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). This will be the first time Metronomy will have played live since headlining Festival No 6 in 2015, bringing to end a planned break from touring of nearly 2 years.

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’.
To tie-in with the ‘Summer 08’ concept, Mount crafted a special ‘Summer 08’ DJ set of new tracks, special remixes and edits, and other music which ties in with the album’s core theme.
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.
