Last month, Canadian punk trio METZ announced their third studio album, Strange Peace. Today, the band has released the second single off the Steve Albini-recorded record, “Drained Lake.” Like many METZ songs in the past, the verses feature fast, pummeling riffs underneath distorted vocals, before exploding into a frenetic chorus. It’s perfect, ear-splitting goodness. Stream the track, along with first single “Cellophane,” below.

METZ will be touring North America this fall with Uniform, as well as some notable European dates with Protomartyr (who also have a new record coming out soon). They’ve got two in NYC: Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 4 (tickets) and Bowery Ballroom on October 5 (tickets) Updated tour dates are listed below.

Strange Peace is out September 22 via Sub Pop.
