Metro Station Reunite for New EP, Tour
In April, 2010, Metro Station announced an indefinite breakup after reported multiple disputes between former best friends and musical collaborators Trace Cyrus and Mason Musso. However, the two have reconciled and the band -- behind the Billboard Top 10 single “Shake It” -- is returning with a new EP and tour.
"After over four years of being apart, fans -- and even myself -- thought this would never happen,” Trace Cyrus tells Billboard. “I’m extremely excited to be making amazing music with Mason as Metro Station again. We started this band together and it only feels right we finish what we started."
The new music is already underway with the high-energy, dance-heavy single, “Love & War,” out now. In the video (below), the band laments a destructive love affair. “I thought I was the only one,” Cyrus sings. “Her love’s like a loaded gun / She’s deadly, it’s crazy / I’m missing her lately.”
The next step is a new EP due this fall and a co-headlining tour with The Ready Set to kick off October 21 in Salt Lake City, Ut. and wrap up November 22 in San Diego, Ca. Dubbed The Outsiders Tour, the month-long trek will also feature The Downtown Fiction and Against The Current.
Musso can’t wait to get back out on the road with his reunited musical partner.
“We’ve been out of the scene for a while now, but I truly think this time apart has helped us grow as a band,” he tells Billboard. “We feel stronger and more united than we’ve ever felt before. We are ready to get back out on the road and reconnect with our fans. This is just the beginning of our journey.”
