Canadian electronic pop/rock outfit Metric have announced the arrival of their fifth full length album.
‘Synthetica’ will be released offiicially on June 11th, although no tracklisting has been revealed at this time. The band’s previous release, 2009’s ‘Fantasies’ was well received. Teaming up with Spotify, Metric promoted ‘Fantasies’ with a campaighn of heavy advertising which culminated in a limited offer of allowing fans to purchase a full album download for ninety nine pence.
Physical copies of the album were also released, beginning with a lavish special edition (available only via the Metric website) followed by a 2CD retail edition featuring some of the special edition content, a couple of acoustic tracks and a couple otherwise unavailable numbers.
It is not yet known whether the band intends to take a similar route to promote ‘Synthetica’.
