Metz Release Video for Track, Get Off

Since the October 2012 release of their critically acclaimed debut album, the Toronto-based trio Metz have been touring very nearly non-stop, playing shows across North America and Europe.

And last week Stereogum premiered a new video for album track and previous single Get Off which was directed by fellow Canadian and label mate, Chad VanGaalen. In the words of Stereogum: “It’s gross, nutso Heavy Metal-style animated comic-book surrealism and it tells us of the fate of an alien dolphin-dog creature”.

Metz have announced that they will return to Europe this autumn for a headline tour starting in Luxembourg on November 1 and ending in London, UK on November 28.

Praise for the band comes from both sides of the Atlantic. Pitchfork described the record as, “…29 minutes of pure but artfully rendered chaos,” and the NME have tipped them as revivalists of the scene that Sup Pop created in the early-‘90s. As well as a spread of praise across UK media, the band have also done a BBC Radio 1 live session for Huw Stephens and in March Metz was even the station’s “Record of the Week,” resulting in daytime plays for the band, a rarity in a pop-dominated culture.
