It's been a few years since Metric hit us with "Monster Hospital," but the band promises a new LP in the near future. Emily Haines and guitarist James Shaw (who both moonlight as members of Broken Social Scene), have been previewing the new material acoustically this past year, including a performance on IFC Canada's The Rawside Of... documentary series. Watch part of it below.
Metric, "Give Me Sympathy (acoustic)"
The album doesn't have a title or official release date yet, but the fully plugged-in first single suggests it will be well worth the wait. Download it below, thanks to I Am Fuel, You Are Friends.
