METRIC @ The RITZ Ybor 9/29/2012


METRIC is Emily Haines, Jimmy Shaw, Joshua Winstead and Joules Scott Key. An independent rock and roll band empowered by their innovative approach to the music business, METRIC self-released their last album FANTASIES on five continents without the benefit of a label and earned themselves multiple radio hits around the world with songssuch as "Gimme Sympathy," "Gold Guns Girls," and "Help I'm Alive." They went on to sell over a million singles and 500,000 albums worldwide.

Their fifth full-length studio album SYNTHETICA will be released on June 12, 2012. Sonically futuristic yet organic, this album sounds like the culmination of all the music the band has made in their 10 years together. First single "Youth Without Youth" examines the fraying social state with a bristling energy and a driving Gary Glitter beat. "Breathing Underwater" and "Speed the Collapse" both deliver on the classic METRIC chorus of soaring melancholy, while the lyrics for "Lost Kitten" and "Clone" call out some bad behavior and the consequences. Hard rocking title track "SYNTHETICA" offers an epic conclusion to suspenseful album opener "Artificial Noctune."

Tickets for their September 29, 2012 show at The RITZ Ybor are $28.50 in advance and $30.50 day of show.  Tickets will be available online starting Friday, May 18, 2012 RIGHT HERE.
