- Me, Myself, and I
- Metric is a four piece band formed in NYC that has been based at various times in Toronto, Montreal, LA, and London. Their fourth full length studio album FANTASIES is the much anticipated follow up to 2005's highly acclaimed LIVE IT OUT. FANTASIES was written by the band in a farmhouse outside Seattle, and by frontwoman Emily Haines in exile in Argentina. The album was recorded at guitarist Jimmy Shaw's own Giant Studio in Toronto and mixed at Electric Lady in NYC by Grammy award winner John O'Mahony (Coldplay, The Strokes). A densely textured modern mix of psychedlia, electro and rock, the album sounds "really big and really dreamy". On standout track "Gimme Sympathy", when sharp-tongued Haines invokes the age-old existential dilemma - "Who would you rather be: The Beatles or The Rolling Stones" - its because she already knows her answer: neither.
Due to overwhelming demand, and the irresistible appeal of the sunny Toronto summer we have ahead of us, the GA lawn at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre is now open for sale to our show on Friday, July 9! Lawn tickets are $23.25 all-in, and 4 & 6 ticket package deals will be offered soon! You can purchase yours here or on the Roger’s Wireless Box Office.

Recently we had the pleasure of making a video for our song Stadium Love with some new wild friends.
As one of the sentiments expressed in the song is man's disregard for the natural world around us, we were concerned with how the animals we would be working with would be treated. Rest assured, not only were these animals treated with love, respect and tenderness, they were the stars. The word divas comes to mind. It was perfect, we worked on their schedule and pace.
Needless to say, you will see what an amazing experience it was for us to be this up close and personal with these stunningly powerful Hollywood stars. Yes it is truly very close.
