Metric Confirm Fall Tour, Plans to Sculpt "Triumphant Studio Masterpiece"

By |

Savvy new-wave-noise quartet Metric will take a break from prepping to record a "triumphant studio masterpiece" -- their fourth album -- just long enough to squeeze in a tour in September and October, their first U.S. jaunt since spring of 2006. The band will hit a studio co-owned by the band's guitarist Jimmy Shaw and former Death From Above 1979 rocker Sebastien Grainger in November to churn out their first new set of tracks since 2005's Live it Out (the band's first LP, Grow Up and Blow Away was just re-released, and frontwoman Emily Haines has released a solo album in the interim, as will Bang Lime, a group comprised of rhythm-section players Joules Scott-Key and Josh Winstead, in August).
