Long considered one of the planet’s most bombastic live acts and foremost purveyors of abrasive melodicism, METZ has spent the majority of their 11-year tenure crisscrossing the globe and bringing their unparalleled energy directly to the people. Determined to connect with their fans and to find a way within the confines of the pandemic to create a live experience as dynamic as their most recent full length,Atlas Vending, METZ took to the stage in October 2020 at the Opera House in Toronto to Livestream a performance of Atlas Vending in its entirety. Today the band announced the release of this raw and powerful performance.
Live at the Opera House, recorded by Graham Walsh and mixed by Seth Manchester, is available now on all digital service providers, with bundles at Bandcamp and Sub Pop’s Mega Mart that include the full concert film directed by the band’s longtime video collaborator Scott Cudmore.
A pre-order for the limited 1,000 piece pressing on tricolour (Black/White/Oxblood) vinyl which includes a download of the full concert film. The LP can be pre-ordered through megamart.subpop.com, METZ’s merch store and Bandcamp. Grab one while supplies last.
To celebrate this release, METZ have shared the striking live performance video for ‘Pulse‘ from the Opera House. The opening song of a set that grabs you, shakes you and doesn’t let go until the final crushing blow and the feedback subsides, this video, and the full Live at the Opera House album and film, are clear reminders of the unparalleled energy and spirit of METZ live.
METZ return to the stages of North America this November and December and will tour Europe & the UK in the spring of 2022.
