One of the torchbearers for Canada's good name in rock music, Toronto-based band Metric will keep the flame burning bright with its upcoming sophomore effort. After seven months, the four-piece has wrapped production on Live It Out, due September 27th in North America.
Produced by Metric guitarist James Shaw, Live It Out is the follow-up to 2003's successful Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?. The first single lifted from the new disc is called "Monster Hospital," clips of which can be found floating around the internet.
The "ten spontaneous and heartfelt songs" of Live It Out run as follows:
"Too Little Too Late"
"Poster of a Girl"
"Patriarch on a Vespa"
"The Police and the Private"
"Live It Out"
Known for a jerky dancing style which has made her a Canadian indie rock sex symbol extraordinaire, vocalist Emily Haines will bring the fans what they want on an extensive tour of North America this fall. There are a whopping 43 dates confirmed for the headlining jaunt, which kicks off September 22nd in Guelph.
Any day now a full listing of Metric's fall tour will appear at ilovemetric.com.
