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.
Oh, and in case you missed their slow reveal of "Youth Without Youth," check it out right here.
