METZ "Wet Blanket"

METZ "Wet Blanket"
Toronto noise pop merchants METZ are prepping for both the release of their self-titled debut on Sub Pop, and a number of globetrotting tour dates to support it. Hoping to stoke the fires a little more before either arrives is the newly launched "Wet Blanket" single.

The song starts up with peels of distortion before wrenching into a conflagration of hammered-out drums, speaker-blowing guitar melodies and bespectacled six-stringer-frontman Alex Edkins's distorted cries of "you'll never be the same." It may be a lofty assumption, but you can check out the potentially game-changing noisy nugget down below.

You can also see an updated tour schedule at the bottom of the page.

METZ will arrive on October 9.
