Metz Announce 'Automat' Rarities Collection

Thursday, 16 May 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Metz have announced a collection of rarities.

‘Automat’ will feature non-album singles, b-sides and rare tracks that date back to 2009, as well as some early recordings prior to their signing with Sub Pop. It is due for release on July 12, following the Toronto band’s UK and European tour dates. Guitarist and vocalist Alex Edkins said:

"The idea to release ‘Automat’ came after realising our early 7" singles were being sold online for upwards of $60 bucks a pop. We wanted to make those songs available and affordable to anyone who might want them in the physical format. What started as reissuing a couple of 45s, quickly morphed into an entire LP, compiling rarities, demos and alternate takes from over the years.”

The first cut from the compilation is Pure Auto, which was originally released as the b-side to Eraser. It arrives with an animated video created by Montreal’s Scorpion Dagger.

‘Automat’ tracklist:

  1. Soft Whiteout
  2. Lump Sums
  3. Dry Up
  4. Ripped on the Fence
  5. Negative Space (7" version)
  6. Automat
  7. Wet Blanket (demo)
  8. Dirty Shirt
  9. Leave Me Out
  10. Can't Understand
  11. Pure Auto
  12. Eraser
