METZ Announce New Album 'Atlas Vending' + Share Single 'A Boat To Drown In'

Already touted as the "noise-rock anthem of the summer" (winter in Aotearoa) by Louder, METZ's spiky single 'A Boat To Drown In' is the furious first taste from the Toronto trio's fourth studio album Atlas Vending, dropping this October via Sub Pop. Tucking infectious hooks into a tumbleweed of in-the-red guitars and urgent howls, 'A Boat To Drown In' is paired with a wild and unsettling short film directed by Tony Wolski, who explained his ideas behind the stylish clip...

"The song has a beautiful, crushing numbness to it that we wanted to mirror in the visual. So we chose to romanticize our main character's descent into her delusions of love and togetherness. At a time when everyone’s simultaneously coping with some sort of isolation, a story about loneliness—and the mania that comes with it—seems appropriate to tell.”

'Atlas Vending' is out on Friday 9th October via Sub Pop.
