METZ RELEASE DYSFUNCTIONAL VIDEO FOR “WASTED” + ANNOUNCE TOUR DATES

    Metz team up with their fellow Toronto resident, filmmaker Scott Cudmore, once again to bring you another disturbing episode in the noise-punk’s saga. Last October, their combined audio-visual forces for “Wet Blanket” landed them in the top ten finalists for a 2012 Prism Prize. On “Wasted”, the artifice of photography comes undone via kitschy video effects and asymmetrical-ized faces, deconstructing the stereotypical conception of beauty and idealized happiness the cameras are often expected to produce. The dysfunctional in its subversive brilliancy.

    Metz embarks on a seasons-long tour in Europe and North America with several festival appearances and supporting Sub Pop label-mates, Mudhoney, in the UK.
