METZ and Preoccupations to Hit Canada on Co-Headlining North American Tour

Get ready for 2021 dates in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Edmonton and more

BY Calum SlingerlandPublished Jun 15, 2021

Though METZ have performed plenty from last year's vicious album Atlas Vending for various livestream events, the band will finally take their latest effort on the road, mapping out a co-headlining 2021 tour with Preoccupations.

A month-long North American trek will see the two bands play 23 dates on the continent in that time, with Canadian stops coming in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto and Montreal.

However, the itinerary's three Toronto dates will see the two outfits play separately. A December 4 stop at Mod Club will feature Preoccupations only, while METZ will cap the run with back-to-back dates of their own at Lee's Palace on December 17 and 18.

Before they hit the road, METZ have shared a live performance video of "A Boat to Drown In," recorded at Toronto's Opera House late last year. A press release teases further news on that performance will arrive shortly.

You can find the complete tour itinerary below. Tickets for all shows with Preoccupations are on sale now, while the December 17 and 18 shows go on sale Friday (June 18) at 10 a.m. local time. 

Preoccupations' most recent album remains 2018's New Material.
