Metric
Entertainment Weekly unveils Metric’s new song “Fortunes” from their forthcoming album Pagans in Vegas calling the song “a dark, spacey synth-pop song elevated by a roaring chorus and vocalist Emily Haines’ emotional range. She hops between bitterness and elation with ease.”  Metric also introduces the new limited edition “Pagan Time Capsule,” a collector’s item curated personally by the band. See the video below. Limited to 500 units, the engraved wooden box contains an autographed cassette tape and customized memorabilia, as well as a digital download of the new album.
After spending a full summer touring the U.S. as the special guests of Imagine Dragons, Metric will play several festivals throughout September including Life Is BeautifulMade in America and Music Midtown before heading out for a full European tour in October. See full tour dates below.
The LP is set for release on September 18 via the band’s own label MMI and is available for pre-order on iTunes with an instant download of “Cascades,” “The Shade,” “Too Bad, So Sad,” and now, “Fortunes.” Physical and digital pre-order packages are available on the band’s website including a variety of exclusive, autographed items and 2 bonus tracks. The limited edition EP, The Shade, includes “Cascades” alongside first single “The Shade,” additional album track “Too Bad, So Sad” and exclusive bonus track “Office Towers Escalate.”
Metric recently launched The Pagan Portal, a free app featuring advance access to new music. The app is available for download on iOS/Apple and Android platforms here and allows fans to unlock streams of songs from the band’s upcoming album well before the music can be heard anywhere else. Users of the app may also receive occasional notifications regarding special announcements and access to perks such as pre-sale tickets, contest opportunities, discounts and more.
