Welcome to our website.

We are The Metatrons, a pop band from Hertfordshire, in the UK.

We play very noisy pop songs, sometimes on recordings and sometimes in front of people.

We've been described as "Delectable skewed fuzz-pop". Another nice reviewer said "think Blondie meets Sonic Youth via pop over a scorched earth backing..." All these things please us.

So what are we? Well, there are four of us - three boys and a girl.
The girl does the singing and the keyboards and the three boys play the guitar, bass guitar and drums (one instrument each, just to save us from getting confused).

Here we will tell you about gigs that you can come and see us play, records that we have made that you can buy and other things that may or may not be of interest to you, such as cat-related stories, or how busy the supermarket was today.

Our debut album is available, it's called 'Between Planets'. You can download the album or individual tracks from itunes HERE

We are going to record another album quite soon. We've written most of it but not all of it yet so you'll have to hang on for a bit but it'll be really good when it's done. There is a double A side 7 inch single coming out on the 19th April, which should sastisfy the product-hungry of you for the time being.

Tracks from our current album (and some short clips of the new single) are available on our Soundcloud page (

You can buy downloads of the single from iTunes HERE

We also have a twitter feed, @themetatronsvox so please follow us as we are witty and urbane - sometimes. Our cat also tweets. And sleeps. And leaves fur everywhere. Have a look here @themetatronscat

We have YouTube channels too so please have a look at us HERE and HERE. You can see our NEW video (distributed via Nub Country Records) HERE.There will be more videos soon!

Have a look on our "Archive" page - it'll tell you where we've been (in a nice way) and our broadcast history, interviews, reviews, old posters, listings, that sort of thing.

Thanks for coming to see us in our virtual home. Don't be shy, it's always nice to see you.
