By | Published on Thursday 19 April 2012


Metric have announced that their fifth album, ‘Synthetica’, will be released on 18 Jun, preceded by a single, ‘Youth Without Youth’, exactly a month earlier. Produced by guitarist Jimmy Shaw, the album features a collaboration with Lou Reed called ‘The Wanderlust’.

Speaking about the album, Shaw said: “‘Synthetica’ is the sonic culmination of everything we have done. We’ve always had a sound in our heads that we hoped to realise. We finally heard it coming out of the speakers this time. It’s futuristic and synthesised, yet also organic”.

The band will also be in the UK in July to play three shows. The dates are right here:

2 Jul: London, Shepherds Bush Empire
7 Jul: Manchester, Ritz
8 Jul: Oxford, Academy
