METZ hit Nijmegen, Amsterdam and Zwolle THIS week20-10-2015
METZ's extensive headlining (and earsplitting) world tour on behalf of their latest record "II" is about to hit The Netherlands as well for no less than THREE shows:
22-OCT: Nijmegen (NL) @ Doornroosje
23-OCT: Amsterdam (NL) @ Bitterzoet
24-OCT: Zwolle (NL) @ Lets Get Lost
Written and recorded in 2014, after two years of constant touring behind their rightly adored self-titled debut, "II" is METZ at their most true to form—as pure an expression of what they do as can currently be committed to tape. The guitars are titanic, the drums ill-tempered, the vocals chilling, and the volume worrisome. Though they incorporated new instruments, (baritone guitar, tape loops, piano, synth, found sounds) and stretched out the arrangements, they still managed to “stay true to what made us tick in the first place: that immediacy,” METZ calls it. “If it punches you in the gut.” Following two acclaimed album on Sub Pop (2012's "METZ" and 2015's "II") and an incredible amount of touring, METZ now release a single for the esteemed CA-based label Three One G; it's the first new material since the release of "II". The “Eraser” / “Pure Auto” single is limited to 1,000 copies and hopefully they are bringing some copies to their upcoming shows!
