METZ at Lincoln Hall on 05.12.2013
On Sunday night (5/12), Toronto-based abrasive punks METZ toured through Chicago to play their largest headlining show here yet at Lincoln Hall with No Joy and TV Ghost. As per usual, feedback reigned supreme throughout the performance, and all three members were drenched in sweat by the time it was said and done. Were you there? If so, what did you think? Pictures and a few videos from the Lincoln Hall show are in this post.
Between their non-stop touring schedule, METZ somehow managed to make it into the studio to begin working on their second album. Guitarist Alex Edkins told Exclaim!, "We did manage to find some time after the European tour to get into the studio, and we recorded a new track that will probably see the light of day in a month or two on the internet," he explains. "But it is tough to find the time to focus on new material when you're going from club to club. We're hoping come September, when our touring schedule is all finished, we can focus on the new record." As discussed, you can also catch METZ at the 2013 Pitchfork Music Festival in July and at Pygmalion 2013 in September.
