London punks say 'farewell'

London indie punks The Metros are set to split up after a forthcoming show in Hoxton pub The MacBeth.

The Metros are one of the most divisive bands on the indie scene. Loved by their fans the group have attracted a fair share of critics through their snotty behaviour and rowdy onstage antics.

Formed while still in their teens, the band were soon snapped up by James Endeacott - the man who helped sign The Libertines, The Strokes and The View. Attached to his 1965 Records, the band soon came to the public's attention.

Gaining musical experience working with Baxter Dury, the band blended a ska twist into their debauched rock 'n' roll. Supporting Madness at a special show The Metros gained media attention and were booked to play with The Coral.

However The Metros debut performance on the tour ended in disaster after the group threw a bottle into the crowd which smashed, injuring a young girl. Enduring a torrid time in the press, The Metros released their debut single 'Education Pt. 2' last year.

A brisk indie punk anthem, the band followed this with heavy touring grabbing a rabid fan base in the process. Follow up single 'Last Of The Lookers' was a minor hint, before the group returned to the studio.

The band's debut album 'More Money Less Grief' was released last year and immediately split critics. The Metros announced on their MySpace blog that they were returning to the studio to record new material soon after, but it seems that this will not now be heard.

The Metros have begun advertising a show that they claim is their 'last ever'. The band sent a Facebook message to fans revealing the news, with singer Saul Adamczewski confirming that "the metros are going their separate ways".

Due to take place on July 4th in notorious Hoxton hang out The MacBeth. With support from Joe Lean (DJ set) and many more, fans can expect surprise appearances from fans and well wishers.

The Metros are set to play the following date:
