Metro Station (band)

Metro Station is an American pop band that was formed in Los Angeles by Trace Cyrus and Mason Musso. In late 2006, the band signed a recording contract with Columbia Records and RED Ink Records. The band is best known for the Top 10 Billboard hit single " Shake It" from the group's self-titled debut album. In 2010, tension between Cyrus and Musso caused the band to go on hiatus. In 2011 the band returned, however it was announced that Cyrus was no longer a part of the group and Musso had purchased the rights to the name. An EP entitled Middle of the Night was released in 2013, which was led by the single "Every Time I Touch You". In 2014 Cyrus returned to the band and a new single entitled "Love & War" was released. In 2015, the band released a second full-length album titled Savior.

The band is often described as a scene pop band due to the members' sense of fashion and the band's unique blend of various pop styles.
