Almost Acoustic Christmas: Photos, recaps, interviews, and more!

Most widely known for their 2008 international smash single “Help I’m Alive,” and their 2010 single “Gold Guns Girls,” Metric are giving fans a taste of their latest alt-rock offering titled Synthetica.

Metric’s Emily Haines describes their June 12th release, “Synthetica is about staying home and wanting to crawl out of your skin from the lack of external stimulation… about forcing yourself to confront what you see in the mirror… about being able to identify the original in a long line of reproductions. It’s about what is real vs what is artificial.”

The Canadian exports will perform a few private shows in preparation for their U.S. tour. One of which is the Red Bull Sound Space at KROQ, June 21st with details forthcoming.

Synthetica is also being offered on limited-edition white vinyl. The Czech-produced set comes with 2 x 12″ 200 gram machine numbered white vinyl records, gatefold package with insert, digital download, instant gratification download of first single “Youth Without Youth” and 5 bonus tracks from Synthetica Reflections.

Every ticket purchased for a headlining date on the tour below comes with an instant download of “Youth Without Youth” (to be delivered to each inbox shortly after purchase) as well as a digital copy of Synthetica and 5 bonus Synthetica Reflections tracks, to be delivered on the album’s June 12th release date. Tickets can be purchased at
