Toronto noise-makers METZ are back with a brand new song (and video) for your listening pleasure. Clocking in at over 7 minutes, it’s a raucous number that will leave you drooling for more. The track will be included on their upcoming album Atlas Vending to released August 9th through Royal Mountain and Sub Pop.
The song is “…about leaving a bad situation behind. About overcoming obstacles that once held you back, rising above, and looking to a better future. The title refers to immersing yourself fully into what you love and using it as a sanctuary from negativity and a catalyst for change.” The band has shared a new video for the track which Video Director Tony Wolski sought to visually enhance and expand on these ideas. Wolski: “The song has a beautiful, crushing numbness to it that we wanted to mirror in the visual. So we chose to romanticize our main character’s descent into her delusions of love and togetherness. At a time when everyone’s simultaneously coping with some sort of isolation, a story about loneliness—and the mania that comes with it—seems appropriate to tell.”
