Metric will be touring heavily this summer to promote their latest album, Synthetica, which comes out tomorrow (June 12) through Metric Music International. For fans on the Canadian West Coast who had been feeling a little left out of the fun, we've got some good news for you: the band just announced that they will be making a Vancouver appearance this month.

The show will be taking place on June 23 at the Commodore Ballroom. This is no ordinary concert, however, since access will be limited and fans can get access to tickets via contests sponsored by Rogers.

So how exactly do you win tickets? Well, there will be contests over at Facebook (prior to June 14), at participating Rogers Wireless stores (from June 15 to 22), and at the Rogers Wireless Box Office website (URL to be revealed June 18). There will also be radio and TV giveaways. Get more details right here.

Good luck, and be sure to read our cover story about Metric right here. See the tour schedule below.
