The time for boring music has come to an end. Toronto’s incredible punk trio, METZ, are back with the first single off their highly anticipated third album, Strange Peace (out on September 22nd).

Mess of Wires is a great song full of wild energy. One of the things that makes METZ stand out amongst their noisy peers is their ability to transfer energy through their music. Not in a weird crystals and ‘chill vibes’ kind of way – but in the sense that their music is so intense and the rhythmic hypnotic melodies never slow down and never ease up –  you actually feel a wave of intense energy wash over you as you listen to their music. They are amazing and the new album can’t be here soon enough.

As with most great bands – METZ are even better live and you owe it to your ears to have that experience if they come to your town. Find METZ tour dates here.

More about the upcoming album:
“Strange Peace was recorded in Chicago, live off the floor to tape with Steve Albini. The result is a distinct artistic maturation into new and alarming territory, frantically pushing past where the band has gone before, while capturing the notorious intensity of their live show. The trio continued to assemble the album (including home recordings, additional instrumentation) in their hometown, adding the finishing touches with longtime collaborator, engineer and mixer, Graham Walsh.”
