Metz have dropped another track from their upcoming album.

Light Your Way Home serves as the soaring finale of the Toronto band's fifth album, and first in four years, 'Up On Gravity Hill', which is due out on April 12.

Featuring guest vocals from Black Mountain's Amber Webber, the dense, noise-rock track arrives with a cinematic video, and follows the previously unveiled cuts 99 and Entwined (Street Light Buzz). Metz frontman Alex Edkins commented:

"Light Your Way Home is definitely one of our favorites from 'Up On Gravity Hill'. I was listening to lots of Jesu and Low (as I do most winters) when writing this one. Lyrically, it's about missing your loved ones to the point of losing your grip on reality. We distorted and added a mechanical slap back to the drums to create a wild and huge sound.

"I love how big we got the production on this one. It's like nothing we've ever made before, sonically or lyrically. Amber Webber (Black Mountain, Lightning Dust) was so great to work with, and her voice just takes this song to another stratosphere. I think the video by Colin Medley perfectly captures the vibe and intent of the song."

The trio will support the follow-up to 2020's 'Atlas Vending' with a spring North American tour, and UK and European shows in November. They'll also appear at Green Man festival near Brecon, Wales, as well as festivals in France and Spain.
