METZ hit Amsterdam and Eindhoven this June19-03-2019
With their 2017 opus Strange Peace (out now on Sub Pop) still rattling around skulls on either side of the Atlantic, METZ return to Europe this June including NL dates in Amsterdam and Eindhoven. For those yet to experience METZ live, it's the only way to truly understand what the Toronto trio are all about: a wild cacophony of shrieking guitars, bruising rhythms and flailing limbs; a transcendent fury that enraptures all in earshot.
Since releasing their self-titled debut record in 2012, which The New Yorker called, “One of the year’s best albums…a punishing, noisy, exhilarating thing,” the Toronto-based 3-piece METZ have garnered international acclaim as one of the most electrifying and forceful live acts, touring widely and extensively, playing hundreds of shows each year around the world.
Their third full-length, Strange Peace, sees the band - made up of Alex Edkins (guitar, vocals), Hayden Menzies (drums), and Chris Slorach (bass) - offering up an emphatic but artful hammer swing to the status quo.
Strange Peace was recorded in Chicago, live off the floor to tape with Steve Albini. The result is a distinct artistic maturation into new and alarming territory, frantically pushing past where the band has gone before, while capturing the notorious intensity of their live show.
