Hear An Ear-Splitting New Song From METZ, "Spit You Out"

A searing cut from the Toronto noise-rockers' new album.

On May 5 (a day before in non-U.S. territories), Sub Pop will release II, the appropriately named second album from Toronto rippers METZ. Lead track "Acetate" has already made the rounds, and now there's another bounty of screech to enjoy from the album. "Spit You Out" has one hell of a buzzsaw hook, with howling vocals and a chuggling churn that tastes like battery acid but goes down smoothly regardless. What a predicament!

"'Spit You Out' is loosely based on the uncanny ability of 'modern life' to suck you in, beat you down, grind you up, and spit you out... disoriented, disenfranchised and wanting badly to start at the beginning again," METZ's Alex Edkins told FADER in an email. "It also has a ripping guitar solo." It sure does! Check out the band's tour dates below, too.
