After the release of singles Cellophane and Drained Lake, in July and August respectively, Toronto noise-rock group METZ share Mess of Wires. Taken from their forthcoming third album, Strange Peace, Mess of Wires is a relentless assault of jagged noisy guitars and robust powerful dreams. Furthermore, as frontman Alex Edkins comments, the track is “a reminder to myself to speak out and say what I believe. To be honest with myself. It is common to feel that your thoughts are inconsequential, a drop in the echo-chamber, but silence can be worse. Speak out about what you believe in, loud and often. In the spirit of this song, I want to strongly condemn the violent and hateful actions of the white-supremacists and neo-nazis in Charlottesville, VA. this past week. Their vile attempts to incite division and fear through intimidation and violence have no place in this world.”
Strange Peace is set to be released on 22nd September via Sub Pop. The band are currently on a world tour, with UK dates coming towards the end of November. Check out those dates below.
