METZ: "Dirty Shirt"

METZ makes me very happy.  Their energy is refreshing and I'm hoping that it catches on, resulting in more bands sounding like they give a shit about making music.  The self-important indie thang is played; bring on the excitement, please.

The band is releasing a digital single, "Dirty Shirt/Leave Me Out."  You can listen to "Dirty Shirt" on the Soundcloud link below and check out the trailer for the single.

On December 4, Sub Pop will release the digital single for "Dirty Shirt" + "Leave Me Out" by Toronto’s METZ. These songs were previously only available as a limited-edition 7" single, and “Dirty Shirt” can now be streamed online via Pitchfork. Additionally, Pitchfork TV will broadcast a live streaming concert you can view on December 19 (at 12:30pm ET) featuring sets from METZ and label mate King Tuff. This video piece gives a glimpse of both the figurative a-side of this single and METZ live in Toronto at the record release show for their 2012, self-titled debut album (see news story November 29).

METZ will wrap up their 2012 tour schedule with a show on December 19 in Brooklyn, NY at the Music Hall of Williamsburg with King Tuff. Then in early 2013, the band will kick off a massive European tour, which begins on January 25 in Athens, GR at Six D.O.G.S. Cultural Center and currently ends on March 12 in Brussels, BE at Muziekodroom. Please find a full list of tour dates below.

In related news, METZ have three new live sessions that feature versions of "Dirty Shirt" & "Headache" to share at this time: A Noisevoxx "Noisemakers" segment, which was recorded in conjunction with "Live at Braund Sound" and "Stereospectacular" (watch here); Slacker Radio (watch here); and Daytrotter (listen here). The latter two performances also include album cut "Wasted". 

METZ, led by the singles "Headache" (Mp3) & "Wet Blanket" (official video), is now available worldwide on CD, LP and digitally from Sub Pop.
