There is a special night in store at The Met later this month as Scarlet, a young lady making quite a name for herself, returns to her home town.

Basing herself in London, Scarlet is now signed to a major music management and wants to come back to play in Peterborough, headlining at The Met on March 31 with some special guests.

Her second single “Addicted” was released in November and an EP “Infinitely” will be released on March 24.

She has also played live at the nearby Secret Garden Party last year and the BBC Introducing Stage.

Before then, The Met is bringing Holding Absence to Peterborough on Saturday, March 18.

Despite being in existence a mere six months,the Cardiff band’s unique blend of emotive post-hardcore has gained the attention of Nuclear Blast’s imprint label Sharptone Records.

Frontman Lucas Woodland says: “We speak about who we are, who we want to be, and what we stand for. We speak about those things in great depth very often, and it’s refreshing to know that there’s not much of a limit to what we can do, and what we WANT to do. As music fans, we love listening to everything from Radiohead to Thy Art Is Murder - so there’s a large range of inspiration there. But I believe the real goal for us is to always write something sincere and honest, that will hopefully make people feel something. The day we stop writing true music, regardless of genre, is the day Holding Absence dies. We’re so fortunate to have found a label that believes in us as people, as well as musicians, and we’re very excited to do them proud and make something beautiful for them.”

Support comes from highly rated Peterborough band Return To Rome. The band featured on the BBC Introducing Stage at the 2015 Reading/Leeds Festival. More supports to be added shortly.

Show starts 7.30pm and advance tickets are on sale now.
