"Love You Back" Metric

Metric has released a new video for their album track “Love You Back.” A show of appreciation for the band’s fans, the video consists of a number of fan videos submitted via social media and edited together.

“‘Love You Back’ is about making a decision to stop being miserable,” notes frontwoman Emily Haines. “We get trapped in past incarnations of ourselves and decide that nothing can ever change. I’ve been held in place with wire and lace and waltzed around the drain. In the tension between a very dull standard of conventional morality and an intense desire to break out of it, our fixed ideas of ourselves and fear of any negative outside perception keep holding us back. What we desperately want is to ditch all that and be free.”
Haines adds, “The video for ‘Love You Back’ is performed by fans, each owning the song in their own way. It’s addictive to watch, like a version of Instagram in an alternate reality where people are way less concerned about crafting the perfect image of happiness and instead are just feeling it, and expressing it, for real, IRL.”

This Valentine’s Day, Metric is releasing limited edition colored 7” vinyl singles and an exclusive t-shirt for the song. “Love You Back” is the newest release from the band’s seventh LP Art of Doubt, out now via MMI/Crystal Math Music.

Metric, will embark on a co-headlining North American tour alongside Mexican rock band Zoé, supported by fellow Canadians July Talk. The extensive 27 city tour begins February 11 in Cleveland, and $1 from each ticket sold will be donated to the fight against climate change through the band’s ongoing work with the Plus1 organization.
