They’ll preview new material on the road

Metric announce North American dates
Metric have announced details of a US tour, their first jaunt on the road on over a year.

The band will kick off the stint in Washington DC and will use the outing to road test material from their fourth album, which is due out next year,

The band have been holed up in Toronto’s Giant Studios writing songs for the record, which they hope to begin recording once the tour ends.

"We've always found it is really beneficial to road test songs before recording them” says guitarist Jimmy Shaw. “It's also great to give our audience a chance to hear songs in their infancy before they get committed to tape and have to go out into the world on their own. We're also going to try to make this tour a little more interactive than normal by inviting fans to write our set lists and get in on some other ideas we're dreaming up as well.“

Toronto-based Crystal Castles, will support on all the shows up to October 3rd (as well as San Francisco on the 6th).
