Metro Station

On the heels of today’s announcement of Metro Station’s reunion, The Ready Set and Metro Station have announced a co-headline Fall Tour to kick off on October 21st in Salt Lake City, UT and will wrap on November 22nd in San Diego, CA.  The “Outsiders” Tour will also feature support bands The Downtown Fiction and Against The Current. The ticket pre-sale is live now here: www.outsiderstour.soundrink.com and will go on-sale to the public Friday August 15th at noon local time.  Tour dates below.

 

In April 2010, Metro Station had announced an indefinite breakup, however the combination of time and perspective managed to make the impossible occur by bringing two former musical collaborators and best friends back together. The pair (Trace Cyrus and Mason Musso) have been hanging out ever since, but they chose to keep their reconciliation private instead of flaunting it to the world, at least not until they were both ready to go public, citing miscommunication as the main reason behind the break-up.  What was never an issue, however, for Cyrus and Musso was writing hit songs. The band’s 2007 self-titled album-which included tracks like “Seventeen Forever” and “Kelsey” sold more than 500,000 copies and its third single, “Shake It,” was certified platinum, having sold more than 2.7 million copies. The song also reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2008 and the accompanying video has racked up 47 million YouTube views to date. You can check out today’s announcement on Billboard, here: http://bit.ly/1l0rG5R

 

Now that Musso and Cyrus have reunited, it’s time to get back into the studio and make more Metro Station music. Up first will be a new EP due out this fall, which features the brand new song “Love And War,” a track that blends the group’s signature electro-pop melodies and newfound lyrical depth. Watch the video for “Love And War” here: http://vevo.ly/W3bgRf. The track is also now available on iTunes HERE. The band will also be hitting the road in October with The Ready Set this fall. Not only does the future look bright, but the possibilities are endless for Metro Station. “I really think in the long run, we’re going to look back at the breakup as a blessing from God,” Cyrus says with complete sincerity. “I’m very religious so I feel like God kinda came in, took everything we had away from us and slapped us on the wrist, saying, ‘You need to learn, you need to appreciate what I’m giving you.’ I feel like this is our second chance to make things right and to prove that we enjoy doing this and appreciate it.”

 

The band will be answering fan questions today, August 12th at 5pm PST/8pm EST on You Now. Head over to the site to hear what’s coming up for Metro Station: http://www.younow.com/metrostation/channel

The Ready Set’s new studio album The Bad & The Better (out now via Razor & Tie) is available on iTunes HERE and Amazon MP3 HERE. The Bad & The Better album was produced by Ian Kirkpatrick (Neon Trees, Breathe Carolina, The Plain White T’s, Young The Giant). Last week The Ready Set wrapped the Van’s Warped Tour and released a new song, “Trash Talking Love” featuring Kitty Pryde – listen exclusively on Popcrush HEREThe track is also available for purchase digitally on iTunes HERE. The Ready Set’s Jordan Witzigreuter was only 20 years old when nearly overnight, the young Indiana-born musician-who had spent the better part of his teens writing an arsenal of illegally catchy, electro-pop songs-was plucked from near obscurity and thrust into the spotlight. “I started playing shows to a couple people in someone’s basement,” Witzigreuter remembers. “Then, a year and a half later, I was playing radio festivals with Maroon 5 to 10,000 people.”  Five years have passed since the release of TRS’s debut album, I’m Alive, I’m Dreaming, which hit No. 3 on Billboard‘s Heatseakers chart, thanks to the platinum-selling success of the LP’s first single, “Love Like Woe.”  In 2011 TRS released their sophomore album Feel Good Now and the hit song “Young Forever.” Jordan has since been writing and even penned a song to Taylor Swift “For The Better” that went viral with over 500,000 views. The band has toured with The Wanted, Carly Rae Jepsen, Cher Loyd, Breathe Carolina, We The Kings, Allstar Weekend, Boys Like Girls, and more.
