Globe-trotting foursome Metric announced the release of their first-ever DVD, “Live at Metropolis.” Due out February 12th on Last Gang Records, “Live at Metropolis” features Metric’s sold-out performance at Montreal’s Metropolis concert hall last Fall, during the tour for their last album, LIVE IT OUT. In addition, the DVD includes three music videos from the album’s singles.
A band known for their live performances, Metric has won great praise for their high-energy shows, helmed by frontwoman Emily Haines: Spin.com has proclaimed, "There's always something divine about [Metric's] stage show” while Pitchfork Media wrote of a recent show that Haines, “doesn't mind getting down and dirty in the interest of an ass-kicking rock show." Oversees, the NME declared that the band “caused a riot last time they did the rounds" and, reporting at San Francisco’s Download Festival this October, the San Jose Mercury News said that, "Having seen the band live it now makes sense why the Rolling Stones once requested Metric to be their opening act. Haines is a powerful frontwoman….”
Though “Live at Metropolis” won’t be released ‘till February, iTunes will have an exclusive preview, starting the second week of December. For 99 cents, fans will receive three live audio tracks from the performance (“Patriarch on a Vespa”; “The Police and The Private”; “Too Little Too Late”), as well as the trailer for the DVD.
Currently working on new material for their fourth album, Metric looks forward to hitting the studio this Winter.
