Metric will release a new album, Formentera, on July 8. Details are scant, but they have shared the first single, "All Comes Crashing," a typically towering piece of anthemic synthpop, and its music video. Watch that below.

“Not everyone has a conventional life with conventional relationships,” says frontwoman Emily Haines. “‘All Comes Crashing’ is a love song that goes beyond romantic love, it’s an expression of solidarity with whoever it is you would want to have beside you in the event of catastrophe. It might be your best friend, it might be your blood brother or your dog. The song is dedicated to those you consider your family, whatever that looks like for you.”

Metric have also announced a North American tour, that starts in Canada in August with Dear Rouge and Barees Strange as openers, and will dip below the US border in September, wrapping up with two nights at NYC's Brooklyn Steel on October 26 & 27. No openers for US shows have been announced, but all dates are listed below.
