Myspace Magic: Metropolitans

This week I'm in a prolific mood, so you're honoured with a second Myspace Magic feature! Today we take a look at Metropolitans ahead of their the EP release promotional gig on February 18 at the Liverpool O2 Academy.

Having become official "friends" on myspace, Tony was kind enough to take some time to answer my standard set of questions. Here's what Metropolitans have to say.

NME-E: Who are you and how did you come about?
Met: The band is, Tony Slater, lead vocals and guitar; Ste Miceli, lead guitar and backing vocals; Scott Davies, bass; and Adam Caine on drums. We have known each other since school really. Myself and Ste have been in bands together for a good couple of years now and we had jammed a few times with Scott and Adam, so us getting together as a band was going to happen at some point.

NME-E: What are your releases to date?
Met: Nothing of yet but we are planning to release an EP on Febuary 18th at the Liverpool 02 Academy.

NME-E: If you could choose a band to support you, who would it be?
Met: Hard one... so many bands we would like to support! That would have been an easy question! Most Liverpool bands around now are class so anyone of them really.

Keeping it local, it's great to see bands in the 'Pool supporting each other like that.

NME-E: What was you favourite album of 2008?
Met: Mine personally? probably The Killers with 'Day & Age', the rest of the band probably wouldn't agree, they seem to like Kings Of Leon's new one which is also a really good album. The Courteeners album has got us talking though!

I wonder if the fact The Courteeners got a mention was down to NME-E's influence!

NME-E: What are your objectives/prospects for next 12 months?
Met: Hmm, hopefully make this (being in a band) our full time job, maybe record an album or another EP later in the year. We would like to tour the UK but money's tight at the moment with all this credit crunch and that. who knows?

At present there are just two tracks on their myspace page. However, you easily see where they are coming from. If you can't get to the gig yourselves at least give them a cyber visit and check out their powerful sounds. As a fleeting visit from Murcia is not an option, I'd like to thank them from here and wish them all the best for the gig and that EP. I look forward to hearing some more stuff VERY soon.
