Metronomy finally confirm Australian sideshows
Tue 26th Oct, 2010 Newsin
Trainspotters might remember the other month ITM published some nifty little detour-dates for UK electro-oddballs Metronomy which had mistakenly been put online by the band ahead of their Australian visit for the Harbourlife festival next month. Those dates got yanked and shuffled back into the shadows until the time was right for the proper announcement and it looks as though now is that time.
At last getting the official green-light, local indie kids Popfrenzy have announced that Metronomy will be casting off from their Harbourlife duties in Sydney and the Gold Coast for a handful of sideshows in November. Sounds like a good warm-up for summer to us!
As well as heading down south for a rare Tasmanian show with The Temper Trap, these Metronomy dates will be extra special as they’ll give fans the chance to check out some new material which the band have been working on for the follow-up to last year’s Nights Out. Colour us excited.
