Metric Plans Fall Tour To Debut New Material

Last Gang Records and Metric have announced the globe-trottingfour-piece's first 
tour  in  over  a year.  Though the band has been
unbelievably  busy  -- writing 
new material,  selling out shows all over

solo  projects -- these will
be Metric's first public performances  in The  States since
the Spring  of 
2006.  The  dates,  which  kick  off  September  19th in Washington DC,
will help the band road-test new material that  they have been working onfor their fourth
album, due out next year.

Metric has spent  much  of the  summer  in pre-production  at  Toronto's
Giant Studios (co-owned by Shaw and Death From  Above  1979's  Sebastien
Grainger), and looks forward to recording the new album  in November and

Last  Gang  Records'  newest  signing,  Toronto-based  8-bit   thrashers
Crystal Castles, will open all the shows up to October  3rd (as  well as
