Metric New Single & Tour Dates

Metric release brand new single “Sick Muse” take from their fourth studio album “Fantasies” on 18th May.

Sick Muse is the second single after the fantastically schizoid pop rush of “Help I’m Alive”. In a fantastic coup, Emily Haines and her fellow bandmates seem to have pulled off the fantastically rare feat of creating a song that is at once both melodically sweet yet thematically bitter, one which seethes with vitriol and sarcasm while at the same time brimming over with pop hooks and instantly memorable tunes aplenty. With Haines’ pithily observing in the chorus that “Everybody just wants to fall in love”, “Sick Muse” comes on like a cool breeze on a hot summer night with razor blades in it.

Metric will be touring the UK in May. Here are full dates:

11 – Academy 3, Manchester
12 – Oran Mor, Glasgow
13 – Kasbah, Coventry
15 – Drowned in Sound night @ The Great Escape, Brighton
16 – Thekla, Bristol
17 – Oxford Academy, Oxford
19 – Electric Ballroom, London
