In October 2020, Canadian noise punks METZ played a livestream performance at Toronto's Opera House to celebrate the release of their new album Atlas Vending. They played the album in full, along with a couple older tracks ("Negative Space" and "Wet Blanket") and they've now released it as a live album that you can stream below. There's also an option where you get the audio and the original livestream video as a bundle.

METZ will be on tour this fall with Preoccupations, and since we last posted, Chicago's FACS have been added to the trek. That's an amazing triple bill of tightly wound post-punk. Stops include L.A.'s Teragram Ballroom on November 19 and NYC shows at Elsewhere Hall on December 9 and Bowery Ballroom on December 10.

FACS released the terrific Present Tense back in May, and you can stream that below, as well.

Tracklist:
1. Pulse
2. Blind Youth Industrial Park
3. The Mirror
4. No Ceiling
5. Hail Taxi
6. Draw Us In
7. Sugar Pill
8. Framed by the Comet’s Tail
