Metric’s back with a new LP

March 18, 2009

Four years since their last release, Metric returns with their fourth full length, Fantasies, due on April 14th.  The band delivers with fuzzy guitars, pulsing synths and the sexually charged vocals of Emily Haines. While the first single, “Help I’m Alive” is a bit disappointing, songs like “Gimme Sympathy” and “Gold Guns Girls” are loaded with hooks and are meant to be played loud and often.  When the remixes begin to surface we could be hearing some of these tracks all summer long at the clubs.  

The band has promised tour dates in support of Fantasies to be announced soon.  Pre-order your copy here and be prepared for the soundtrack to your spring.  Tracklist and current tour dates listed after the jump.
