Metric announce new album, Synthetica
Emily Haines has confirmed that a fifth Metric album is in the works and is scheduled to be released on June 12th, 2012. According to Hanes, Synthetica, the follow up to Fantasies, will focus on:
"[..] 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."
Synthetica was recorded Giant, Metric's studio, in Toronto with some work also done at Eletric Lady Studios in New York. Jimmy Shaw, Metric's lead guitarist, will be producing the album.
