Metronomy release their third album, ‘The English Riviera’ on April 11th through Because Music. The follow up to 2008’s critically acclaimed ‘Nights Out’, ‘The English Riviera’ is a sonic progression of epic proportions and affirms Metronomy front man and producer, Joseph Mount, as a rare British talent. Since ‘Nights Out’, the band have swollen to a four piece with new members Anna Prior on drums, Gbenga Adelekan on bass, original member Oscar Cash on keys/sax, and Joe himself on vocals, keys and guitar. This expansion of personnel is reflective of a new record that is mapped by vast soundscapes, incredible depth and warmth, and big pop hooks.

Having given the world it s first taster in October 2010 with their single Demons , the duo now present The Day I Die , the lead single from the forthcoming album and another indication that this is an act destined for big things.
