The brutal Toronto punks METZ have returned with a brand new track ‘A Boat To Drown In’ as well as news of a new full-length record too.
The song has been taken from METZ’ forthcoming new album Atlas Vending which acts as the follow-up to 2017 effort Strange Peace and was co-produced by the band and Ben Greenburg.
With the new record, vocalist Alex Edkins said the band’s “goal is to remain in flux, to grow in a natural and gradual way.”
Edkins continued: “Change is inevitable if you’re lucky. We’ve always been wary to not overthink or intellectualize the music we love but also not satisfied until we’ve accomplished something that pushes us forward.”
News of a new album is always welcomed when considering METZ but when that news comes packed with a new song then you’re in for a real treat. What’s more, ‘A Boat To Drown In’ comes with a video directed by Tony Wolski.
In a press releases Wolski said, “the song has a beautiful, crushing numbness to it that we wanted to mirror in the visual”.
“So we chose to romanticise 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.”
