METZ

METZ share new single 'Light Your Way Home' with video, from new album, Up On Gravity Hill, out Apr 12th on Sub Pop.

On April 12th, METZ will release their prodigious new album, Up On Gravity Hill, via Sub Pop. Following the previously released tracks '99' and 'Entwined (Street Light Buzz)' comes the album's gorgeous closer 'Light Your Way Home', which features vocal contributions from Amber Webber of Black Mountain.

METZ frontman Alex Edkins shares,

"’Light Your Way Home’ is definitely one of our favorites from Up On Gravity Hill. I was listening to lots of Jesu and Low (as I do most winters) when writing this one. Lyrically, it's about missing your loved ones to the point of losing your grip on reality.

We distorted and added a mechanical slap back to the drums to create a wild and huge sound. I love how big we got the production on this one. It's like nothing we've ever made before, sonically or lyrically.

Amber Webber (Black Mountain, Lightning Dust) was so great to work with, and her voice just takes this song to another stratosphere. I think the video by Colin Medley perfectly captures the vibe and intent of the song.”

As previously announced, METZ have headlining international tour dates scheduled supporting Up On Gravity Hill, with dates in North America from April 17th to May 17th and a run of UK and EU dates in the fall from November 3rd through November 29th. The band also has a series of UK and EU festival performances in August, including stops at Green Man Festival in the UK, La Route Du Rock and Cabaret Vert Festival in France, and the Canela Party in Spain.
