U.S. TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED AND ON SALE AT ILOVEMETRIC.COM

For the past week, Metric has been sharing clues with fans about “Youth Without Youth,” the band’s first single from the forthcoming album, Synthetica (MMI/Mom+Pop).  We’ve seen mysterious video footage from the recording studio, heard Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw speak on the making of the song, and even saw fan interpretations of “Youth Without Youth” after the song’s lyrics and sheet music were unveiled and before the song’s release (relive the experience at www.ilovemetric.com/youthwithoutyouth).
Today, “Youth Without Youth” is officially released and available for purchase at ilovemetric.com and iTunes.com/metric.  A pre-order of Synthetica is also available at ilovemetric.com.  Every pre-order comes with an immediate download of “Youth Without Youth” and 5 Synthetica Reflectionstracks.  You can also pre-order the album at iTunes.com/metric now and immediately download “Youth Without Youth” (but you’ll have to wait until June 12 to get the 5 Synthetica Reflections tracks).
Lastly, Metric has announced an extensive US tour for the Fall.  Every ticket purchased for a headlining show comes with a download of “Youth Without Youth” (to be delivered to your inbox shortly after purchase) as well as a digital copy of Synthetica and 5 Synthetica Reflectionstracks, to be delivered on June 12.  Purchase your tickets at ilovemetric.com.
