Metric have released a new video for “Risk,” the latest offering, off the band’s current release Art of Doubt, out now via MMI/Crystal Math Music. Metric play their next show on April 26th in Toronto.
For Art of Doubt, Metric collaborated with Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Beck, Nine Inch Nails). “Justin was just what we needed in a producer for this album,” notes Shaw. “He really saw every band member eye to eye and was able to capture what we each do best.” The album was recorded at Metric’s own Giant Studio in Toronto and mixed by Tony Hoffer (Phoenix, Depeche Mode, Air).
“I found in the writing of these songs that I was positioning myself as being out in the world in solidarity with the people around me…no matter what’s going on internally or externally, there’s that sense of urgency, of energy. We’re still going to go out, we’re still going to socialize, to push ourselves, we’re still going to celebrate. It’s just going to be dark,” Haines explains.
$1 from each ticket sold will be donated to the fight against climate change through the band’s ongoing work with the Plus1 organization.
