Canadian rockers METZ are currently gearing up to release their third album ‘Strange Place’, which will be out next month via Sub Pop.
So far they’ve already shared ‘Cellophane’ and ‘Drained Lake’, and now they’re back for more with ‘Mess of Wires’. It’s a no-holds-barred burst of hardcore riffs, pounding drums and aggressively delivered vocals from frontman Alex Edkins.
As reported by Stereogum, Alex said of the track: “It is common to feel that your thoughts are inconsequential, a drop in the echo-chamber, but silence can be worse. Speak out about what you believe in, loud and often. In the spirit of this song, I want to strongly condemn the violent and hateful actions of the white-supremacists and neo-nazis in Charlottesville, VA. this past week. Their vile attempts to incite division and fear through intimidation and violence have no place in this world”.
The band will play a handful of UK live dates as part of their November European tour. Tickets are on sale now.
