One week prior to the U.S. release of Synthetica (MMI/MOM+POP), Metric has shared a full embeddable stream of Synthetica via SoundCloud. Its unveiling comes on the heels of Synthetica Hide+Seek, an interactive scavenger hunt last week in which Metric fans collaborated to unlock an early stream of the album.
Metric has also confirmed three intimate fans-only shows to take place in the wake of Synthetica’s release. Tickets for the private underplays–June 13 at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in New York, June 19 at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco and June 20 at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles–will NOT be made available to the public. Details on obtaining tickets will be announced later this week on ilovemetric.com.
Fans unable to score tickets to the June 20 L.A. show will have a second chance to see the band on June 21, when Metric makes its debut appearance on the outdoor stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live. Following that televised performance, Metric will spend the rest of the summer touring the world making only one U.S. appearance–August 3 at Lollapalooza in Chicago–before its full scale American tour commences September 6 in upstate New York.
Every ticket purchased for a headlining date on the aforementioned tour 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 12 release date. Tickets can be purchased at ilovemetric.com/tour.
