We are very pleased to announce that Metronomy will return to Australia this September and October, joining The Rapture, Junior Boys, Lady Sovereign and many more to form part of the huge Parklife 2009 line up plus headlining two special headline shows.
Metronomy made their first trip to Australia in January this year for Popfrenzy’s Sydney Festival party at the Becks Bar as well as playing sold out shows in Brisbane and Melbourne. Back so soon by popular demand, audiences can expect something new this September. Recently, the band confirmed the departure of their long standing member Gabriel Stebbing. Via the bands’ blog, Metronomy founder Joseph Mount issued a statement explaining Gabriel’s reasons for the move, citing his desire to commit himself fully to his own band, Your Twenties. It was a supremely amicable shake-up and Metronomy thanked Gabriel for many good times and wish him well for the future.
In their new incarnation, Metronomy have enlisted Gbenga Adelekan on bass and Anna Prior (Lightspeed Champion) on drums who have helped turn the already exceptional Metronomy live experience from a laptop looping three piece into a full exciting live band.
