Listen to Metric's New Single "Speed the Collapse"

Canadian rockers Metric have released the second single, “Speed The Release” from their fifth studio album, Synthetica, which is due out June 12.

Frontwoman Emily Haines described the new album quite poetically on the band’s website:

Synthetica is about insomnia, fucking up, fashion, all the devices and gadgets attached to our brains, getting wasted, watching people die in other countries, watching people die in your own country, dancing your ass off, questioning the cops, poetic justice, standing up for yourself, sex, the apocalypse, doing some stupid shit and totally regretting it but then telling everyone it made you stronger, leaving town as a solution to unsolvable problems, owning your actions and owning your time.”
