Confirming that they’ve got a brand new album on the way, METZ’s newest ‘Atlas Vending’ will be arriving on 9th October via Sub Pop. “Change is inevitable if you’re lucky,” says guitarist/vocalist Alex Edkins while talking about their fourth full-length album. “Our goal is to remain in flux, to grow in a natural and gradual way. We’ve always been wary to not overthink or intellectualise the music we love but also not satisfied until we’ve accomplished something that pushes us forward.”
Sharing first single ‘A Boat To Drown In’ to celebrate the news, Alex adds that it’s “…about leaving a bad situation behind. About overcoming obstacles that once held you back, rising above, and looking to a better future. The title refers to immersing yourself fully into what you love and using it as a sanctuary from negativity and a catalyst for change.”
Accompanied by a video directed by Tony Wolski, Tony explains, “The song has a beautiful, crushing numbness to it that we wanted to mirror in the visual. So we chose to romanticise our main character’s descent into her delusions of love and togetherness. At a time when everyone’s simultaneously coping with some sort of isolation, a story about loneliness—and the mania that comes with it—seems appropriate to tell.”
