Metz played a one-off gig in the basement of The Circle tattoo parlour in Soho, London last night (Aug 7).

The post-hardcore trio from Toronto played the 100-capacity venue as part of a Converse ‘Get Loud’ campaign to launch a new line of rock craftsmanship sneakers.

During the hour-long set, Metz played most of the tracks from their self-titled 2012 debut album as well as a new song, ‘Can’t Understand’ and last year’s single ‘Dirty Shirt’. "We had a blast!" bassist Chris Slorach told NME after the show. "It reminded me so much of the venues we came up in back at home."

Pure Love are next in the series of three Converse gigs at The Circle on August 17. Sheffield’s Bring Me The Horizon complete the series on August 22. Tickets are available via Converse UK.

Gig-goers also had the chance to sign up to receive one of 60 free tattoos from tattoo artists including Adrien Edek, Matt 'Oddboy' Barrett-Jones and Frederick Reinel.

Metz played:

'Knife In The Water'
'Dirty Shirt'
'Negative Space'
'Get Off'
'Wasted'
'Can’t Understand' (new)
'Sad Pricks'
'Headache'
'Rats'
'The Mule'
'Wet Blanket'
