MUSIC: Metz book a May Day date for Dublin

METZ have just announced a show at Whelan’s, Wexford Street, on May 1.

Arguably one of the best live bands around, Metz deliver blistering performances of the politically-charged ‘Strange Peace’ standout ‘Mr Plague’, and ‘Eraser’, the A-side from their split Three One G/Sub Pop single from 2016.

Their 2017 tour dates in support of Strange Peace resumed in Seattle at Neumos and continued through to  Austin at The Mohawk.

The band has also announced a new, European headlining and festival tour for 2018, which begins April 19 in Amsterdam at Paradiso Noord and ends on May 5 in Leffinge, Belgium at De Zwerver.

The 2018 trek will bring Metz  to the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Italy, Germany, France, Ireland, and the UK.

Tickets are on sale now.

Recently, Metz delivered a mind-altering visual for ‘Drained Lake’ from Strange Peace.

Directed by Shayne Ehman (who also directed the band's video for ‘Cellophane’) the piece highlights nothing less than the transient nature of time and space. 

"Hardcore fans can rest easy knowing that Metz haven't skimped on the nitrous-fuelled angst that has inspired legions of us to smash windows with our faces since 2012,” Under the Radar reflected recently.

"Strange Peace is an album that just sounds great from front to back, consistently knocking it out of the park with heavy guitars, concrete drums, and basslines that threaten speaker systems everywhere,” added Northern Transmissions

"The band’s third album, ‘Strange Peace’, is very much like its first two, and that is a good thing,” adds Popmatters.

“Each is single-minded in its purpose and methods.

“There is a constant search for a frequency that is thrilling and a commitment to it."
