Metric have announced a new track.

Doomscroller is the second preview of their new album, 'Formentera', due out on July 8. It follows previous cut All Comes Crashing.

The captivating, 10-minute song moves from "hands in the air" dance-influenced sequences to a pared-back piano-led moment that leads to full band finish.  

The track's accompanying video is the latest instalment in an ongoing collaboration with photographer and visual artist Justin Broadbent. The band's Emily Haines said:

“Justin captured rare studio footage of the recording of ‘Doomscroller’ and we used it like a visual anchor, as evocative places outside the room keep creeping in. These traces of life on earth that appear and disappear throughout the song subtly mirror the shifting moods of the music.”

Metric will support theri new record with the 39-city Doomscroller Tour, which will begin in August in Victoria, British Columbia. Further dates across the UK and Europe are currently being finalised and will be announced soon.
