Handsome Tours Presents
8:00pm, Thu 26th July, 2012
The Hi-Fi - Sydney, NSW
+ guests. Canadian indie darlings Metric are thrilled to announce their Splendour in the Grass sideshows!
Metric will be playing a handful of shows leading up to the festival.
From platinum record sales to headlining festivals, selling out arenas, performing at a private event for the Queen of England and most recently winning prestigious JUNO Awards for Alternative Album of the Year and Band of the Year, Metric have been nothing short of prolific in their sonic career to date.
Metric have had a hand in scoring films for everyone from Edgar Wright to David Cronenberg and even wrote the theme song for the Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack with composer Howard Shore.
For a band that had always been told they were doing it wrong, the Toronto-based quartet have certainly proved otherwise.
With the impending release of their fifth studio album Synthetica on June 12 (MMI / Create Control), Metric are on the brink of starting yet another meteoric chapter in their musical career. Mixed by long time Metric collaborator and Grammy-nominated indie-rock specialist John OMahony at New Yorks famed Electric Lady Studios, guitarist Jimmy Shaw describes Synthetica as the sonic culmination of everything we have done.
The bundle includes:
- Ticket to the show
- Digital copy of the Album "Synthetica".
Tickets would be issued to customers as per the usual process via The Hi-Fi, but the record label will look after the fulfilment of the CDs.
You'll receive an email with a link to download the album on June 15. If you don't receive your download link by 5pm on 15 June, check your Spam folder, then email email@example.com
