From Metric's newsletter:
"Given where we're at, now is not the time for whimsical pursuits and diversions. We have been quite adventurous over the years, exploring genres on stage and off, and all those paths led us to this. I'm just going to come right out and say it. This is our seventh album as a band and its a rock record. My friends who've heard it tell me it's a very Metric-sounding Metric record. That's right. Yes! Remember rock? It's fun. It makes you think. And it comes out September 21.
We just released the first single "Dark Saturday" and we're starting to play it
