Hello!

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 MBValentine...sharp 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.

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 2nd album "Patterns of Chaos" will be released through esprit de corps records on June 17th 2016

Our debut album is called "Between Planets". You can download the album or individual tracks from itunes HERE

There is a double A side 7 inch single out at the moment too, but there aren't many of them left!

Tracks from our debut album (and the single) are available on our Soundcloud page (www.soundcloud.com/themetatronsrock)

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

Our Facebook page is HERE

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

Thanks for coming to see us in our virtual home.

The Metatrons, May 2016
