Four years is not a short amount of time. But it's been that long since Toronto indie rock outfit Metric graced us with an album following the success of debut Live It Out in 2005. The band has toured significantly during this period, raising money for charity along the way.

 

Their upcoming album, Fantasies, is expected to be available on April 14. The album is being released on Arts & Crafts in Mexico and Last Gang Records in Canada, but the band is independently putting out Fantasies in the United States. Vocalist Emily Haines has stated that she set out to write "genuine" and "simple" lyrics, while Metric's guitarist Jimmy Shaw describes the sound on Fantasies as "very big," and "very dreamy." The first single, "Help I'm Alive," has already become a hit on Canadian indie rock radio stations, and is a powerful, yet sparse and confessional affair.

Live it Out was their second album, not their debut.

One of the songs I've been greatly anticipating is "Black Sheep" they've performed live:

Although I'm super stoked to hear the latest album, I was bummed a little not to see the song in the line-up. Does anyone have insight on this? Was it renamed?

live it out was their third album
