Metric Share Dressed To Suppress Video

Thursday, 26 July 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Metric have posted a new track.

Dressed To Suppress is the second song, following Dark Saturday, to be shared from their as yet untitled new album, which is due to arrive on September 21, with a UK tour set to follow in November.

Vocalist Emily Haines said:

"Lyrically, the song explores the maze of conflicts we encounter in our attempts at finding and holding onto love; the absurd mating rituals we routinely perform; and the vast divide between the desires our appearances can imply and the way we actually feel inside.

Sonically, it’s one of the most intense songs on the album. We’re already playing it live and it’s getting stronger every night. The contrast between the delicate, dreamy opening and the heavy riffs of the verse and
chorus match the dramatic emotional shifts we all go through when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, the push and pull of retaining our own identities in love.”

Check out director Justin Broadbent's video below.

Meanwhile, the band are currently on the road supporting the Smashing Pumpkins on their North American tour.
