It’s out next week, but you can hear all of Metric‘s Synthetica right now. Stream it below.
It’s a big day for METRIC. Just a few moments ago, the band unveiled a run of North American tour dates over on Spin.com. Along with the announcement comes a whole boatload of additional specialness. At the band’s brand new website, you can now pre-order Synthetica in one of many gorgeous configurations, listen to the band’s new single “Youth Without Youth,” and buy tickets to any of the aforementioned dates (which have the unique distinction of coming with music!). How’s that for options? And no matter where you pre-order, including over on iTunes, you get “Youth Without Youth” as an immediate download, Synthetica on June 12th (when it’s out), and a handful of Synthetica Reflections.
Give a listen to the song here (along with commentary from Emily & Jimmy), and follow below the fold for a full list of dates.

The latest winner of Metric’s Indaba remix contest has been announced. Listen to TrashTalk’s winning remix of Metric’s “Gimme Sympathy,” by clicking here.
“There were so many excellent remixes to choose from but we chose this one because we found it to be the most musically advanced and original. This is not the obvious dance floor hit that most of us think of when we hear the word ‘remix’, which is great! We found ourselves listening to it three times all the way through, each time hearing something new. Thank you Don for the inspired work!”
