Metric announce release of new album ‘Synthetica’

The Canadian group will put out their fifth album on June 11

Metric have revealed details of their brand new album, ‘Synthetica’, which is set for release on June 11.

The band’s fifth album was recorded at their own studio, Giant, in Toronto and at Electric Lady Studios in New York and was produced by Jimmy Shaw. According to the band’s frontwoman Emily Haines, the album “sounds like the culmination of everything we have done. We’ve always had a sound in our heads that we hoped to realize and we finally heard it coming back out of the speakers this time”.

Writing at, Haines added: “‘Synthetica’ is about insomnia, fucking up, fashion, all the devices and gadgets attached to our brains, getting wasted, watching people die in other countries, watching people die in your own country, dancing your ass off, questioning the cops, poetic justice, standing up for yourself, sex, the apocalypse, doing some stupid shit and totally regretting it but then telling everyone it made you stronger, leaving town as a solution to unsolvable problems, owning your actions and owning your time.”

The Canadian electro/indie band released their last album, ‘Fantasies’, in 2009.
