Drummer for Metro Station, Anthony Improgo (Ant) has decided to leave the band after three years.

Anthony is the second band member to leave Metro Station, with keyboardist Blake Healy leaving just three weeks prior to marry his long time girlfriend.

Singer, Trace Cyrus simply tweeted, “and then there were two.”

With the departures, it may seem as though there are internal issues within the band, but Anthony can assure fans that is not the case. Saying, “thank you for the 3 years. you will always be my boys!!!!!!!”

Singers Trace Cyrus and Mason Musso are the only two members still in Metro Station.

Trace Cyrus and Mason Musso from Metro Station recently sat down with Alter The Press to discuss their keyboardist Blake Healey leaving the band and being in talks for their own reality show. Excerpts:

Recently, Blake Healey (keyboards/bass) left the band. It hasn’t been touched on really, what exactly happened?
Mason: He’s getting married right now and he felt that he really needed to focus on his marriage. 

Trace: It was definitely a shock for us, we never expected it, but the road takes a toll on your mind and your body. I think he had all he could take. We all lose our minds at some point on the road, and I think he finally lost his; he needed to go home to clear his head. 

Do you still keep in contact? 
Trace: He hasn’t called me or Mason since the brake-up but he called Anthony (Improgo – drums) once.

Have you spoken about recruiting another member?
Mason: We haven’t really talked about it.

Trace: We are trying to keep it a three piece because, regardless, me and Mason are going to write all the music, all the songs, so it’s not like we need someone else to help us with song writing or anything. Maybe, if someone who played keyboards and does production blew our mind; but right now, it hasn’t really been talked about.

What is the plan for Metro Station in 2010?
Trace: Create a new record for two months in the studio, then do the same thing we did like the first time round, tour the world. Have songs even better then ‘Shake It,’ things can only get better for us.

Are there plans to release a live DVD/live album to keep fans going while you’re in the studio?
Trace: We haven’t spoken about a live DVD, but there have been talks about us doing a reality TV show. That’s something we really want to do.

Would you watch a Metro Station reality show?

Metro Station Portland Performers

Metro Station is currently performing with Miley Cyrus for the Wonder World tour as her opening act, and while there isn’t much footage thus far, MileyCSpace3 uploaded the group performing 17 Forever and Shake It.

Trace started out with “I never thought in a million years that I would be able to tour with my little sister, Miley and this really is an honor. You know a lot of people were like, Trace I don’t know, you guys scare these kids! I was like no, cuz’ they like to dance and they know a good pop song when they hear it. Trust me, we’re Metro Station and we are pop music.”

While censorship may be an issue for these gentlemen, I’m sure they’ll expand their fan base (females especially) by a great amount by the time the tour’s over. I’m just excited to see Mason since he’s rocking the new outfit of the vest without  the usual white shirt underneath. ; )
