Now he’s on tour and performing for audiences around the world. You can check out his band perform in Pittsburgh at The Altar Bar on September 15.

The band came together in England back in 1999 after Mount was approached by someone who said he would put out a record of his work after hearing him experiment with music production and “soundtracking animations” during a DJ sesh. Metronomy released their first album, Pip Paine (Pay the £5000 You Owe) in 2006. It didn’t get much attention, so Mount began to build up the band’s reputation through live shows. After growing tremendously, their fourth studio album, Love Letters, released on March 10, 2014, ended up being number 7 on the UK Albums Chart and named Zane Lowe‘s ‘Hottest Record in the World’.

Since then, they have toured widely throughout the UK and Europe supporting acts like Coldplay, Bloc Party, CSS, Klaxons, Kate Nash, and Justice. Mount also remixes under the bands name and does some pretty awesome things to the work of artists like Lady Gaga and Britney Spears. You won’t want to miss their live show here in the ‘Burgh. The audience can expect quite the spectacle with the inclusion dance routines and stellar light shows. The Altar Bar doors will open for Metronomy at 7:30PM and the show will begin at 8:30PM.
