5th album (Synthetica) will be released, June 12th, 2012: Metric | Synthetica
Quote:
What does it sound like?

It sounds like the culmination of everything we have done. We've always had a sound in our heads that we hoped to realize and we finally heard it coming back out of the speakers this time.

Where was it recorded?

At our own studio, Giant, in Toronto. And at Electric Lady Studios in NYC. This is our favorite combination of spaces.

What is SYNTHETICA about?

FANTASIES was all about pushing ourselves out into the world, going to unknown places and shaking off everything familiar. SYNTHETICA is about staying home and wanting to crawl out of your skin from the lack of external stimulation. SYNTHETICA is about forcing yourself to confront what you see in the mirror when you finally stand still long enough to catch a reflection. SYNTHETICA is about being able to identify the original in a long line of reproductions. It's about what is real vs what is artificial.

What else?

SYNTHETICA is about insomnia, fucking up, fashion, all the devices and gadgets attached to our brains, getting wasted, watching people die in other countries, watching people die in your own country, dancing your ass off, questioning the cops, poetic justice, standing up for yourself, sex, the apocalypse, doing some stupid shit and totally regretting it but then telling everyone it made you stronger, leaving town as a solution to unsolvable problems, owning your actions and owning your time.

This record, alone with Garbage's new disc, just became my most anticipated album of 2012. I absolutely love Fantasies and I can't wait to see where they go next.

Um, yes. This band kicks ass. I still haven't become as familiar as I'd like to be with their entire catalogue but boy do they have some great tunes.

This band is fantastic! Pity I live on the other end of the continent so I don't get to see them play as much as I'd like.

Emily seems to like Buenos Aires a lot because she tends to visit often so hoepfully they'll start playing more over here in the near future.
