METZ "Wet Blanket"
Published Sep 17, 2012Toronto 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.
