METZ Set For Mudhoney Support Slot, Unveil New Video

Just as frontman Alex Edkins promised us, METZ aren’t going to leaving us alone anytime soon.

We’re rather fond of those METZ boys, so when we got news that they’d be returning to the UK yet again, we were really rather thrilled.

Now, don’t get us wrong, we know that they’re set to be here a lot; just as Alex warned us when we last spoke. “We’re not gonna leave you guys alone,” laughed Edkins. “You’re gonna be so sick of us!”

As it turns out, he wasn’t lying. The band have already unveiled appearances at this year’s Field Day and Hevy Fest, along with a full opening slot alongside Fucked Up and Titus Andronicus. Now, they look likely to set up camp in the UK as they announce themselves as support for labelmates Mudhoney.
