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. ??Metrichave 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.
