METZ at Pop Montreal 2013 (more by Dominic Mastrangelo)

Toronto noise-rippers METZ are busy working on their second album for Sub Pop, but have just released a new song to tide us over. Its a cover of "I'm a Bug" by The Urinals, and they've coated this slice of late 70s SoCal punk in the layer of brutal noise one would expect from them. It's pretty awesome, so give this thing a listen (via Stereogum) in this post, where you can also check out their upcoming West Coast dates with Cloud Nothings and The Wytches as well as some new UK dates and a stop at Fun Fun Fun Fest.

While those dates don't hit the East Coast, The Wytches will be in NYC in July. All METZ tour dates are listed, along with the Urinals cover, below...
