Metric Confirms Additional Details for <i>Synthetica</i>

Canadian indie band Metric posted more information online today about its forthcoming album, Synthetica. The 11 tracks included on the group’s fifth full-length record were recorded at their own studio, Giant, in Toronto and at Electric Lady Studios in New York City.
