METZ have announced their new album Atlas Vending, due for release on 9th October 2020 via Sub Pop.
The band have also revealed the video for their new single, A Boat To Drown In.
“[The song is] about leaving a bad situation behind,” explains vocalist/guitarist Alex Edkins. “About overcoming obstacles that once held you back, rising above, and looking to a better future. The title refers to immersing yourself fully into what you love and using it as a sanctuary from negativity and a catalyst for change.”
“The song has a beautiful, crushing numbness to it that we wanted to mirror in the visual. So we chose to romanticise our main character’s descent into her delusions of love and togetherness,” adds video director Tony Wolski. “At a time when everyone’s simultaneously coping with some sort of isolation, a story about loneliness—and the mania that comes with it—seems appropriate to tell.”
