Since releasing their self-titled debut record in 2012, Toronto-based 3-piece METZ have garnered international acclaim as one of the most electrifying and forceful live acts, touring widely and extensively, playing hundreds of shows each year around the world.
Now, Alex Edkins (guitar, vocals), along with Hayden Menzies (drums), and Chris Slorach (bass) are set to unleash their punishing, noisy, exhilarating live show in Singapore on the back of their highly-anticipated third full-length album, Strange Peace, supported by Long Live The Empire.
Strange Peace was recorded in Chicago, live off the floor to tape with Steve Albini. The result is a distinct artistic maturation into new and alarming territory, frantically pushing past where the band has gone before, while capturing the notorious intensity of their live show.
"The best punk isn't an assault as much as it's a challenge —to what's normal, to what's comfortable, or simply to what's expected. Teetering on the edge of perpetual implosion.”
“Their whiplash of distortion is made with precision, a contained chaos. But you would never talk about them like that. Because METZ are not something you study or analyse. They are something you feel: a transfer of energy, pure and simple.”
