Metric Announce Album, Pagans in Vegas, Share “Cascades”

Publish date:

New albums from Yo La Tengo and FIDLAR have been announced today. Up next, Metric. The Canadian band have announced their sixth LP, which is to be called Pagans in Vegas.  It spans 13 new tracks and it’s out September 18.

We’ve already heard the album’s first single, “The Shade”, and today, the band has shared another track, called “Cascades”. It’s a full-blown, autotuned, mostly hookless electropop song, and releasing something like that in 2015 takes balls. I’m on the fence on whether they pulled it off, but it did make me want to listen to “Poker Face”. Make of that what you will.
