Metz is a Canadian noise rock band from Toronto, Ontario, featuring frontman Alex Edkins, bassist Chris Slorach and drummer Hayden Menzies.
Formed in 2008, the band signed to Sub Pop, and released their self-titled debut album in 2012, which was nominated for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize. The band released their second album, ‘II’, in 2015 and are set to release their third album, ‘Strange Peace’, on September 22, 2017, which they supported with a UK tour in November that year.
Now, Metz have lined up UK and Ireland shows as part of a European tour for 2018. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
The current political climate has been a spark of inspiration for many musicians. A growing number have written lyrics that call attention to important issues, while others have less directly alluded to more general concerns. Metz, though, have bottled up all that anxiety in order to sell it back to us in the form of their third album, ‘Strange Peace’.
