Next month, Toronto noise generator METZ start a tour (dates below)
to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their smashing self-titled debut LP
(released 9 October 2012).

Their merciless all motors hurly-burly with inexhaustive frontman
Alex Edkins at the wheels made me and my ears an instant fan.

Along the tour announcement, the trio shared two tracks, of which one is
pretty special. COME ON DOWN features their longtime friend Joe Talbot.

Alex Edkins (frontman) about working with Idles’ sharp-teethed voice Joe Talbot:
“‘Come On Down’ was originally recorded during the Atlas Vending sessions but never fully finished. During the pandemic I really gravitated towards the idea of collaboration as a way
to fill the void left by the loss of live music. I reached out to friends from far and wide in
order to get that feeling of community that gigs provide. Joe Talbot is a longtime friend who METZ has shared the stage with many, many times, and this song was a very natural and
fun way to catch up with him and do something positive with our time off the road.

Joe Talbot: “METZ have been a band we’ve looked up to since they came into our lives
and made things better. I will never forget the first time I saw them or any of the other
times. Allowing me to sing with them is a gift and I hope you like it. I love it and I love
them. Long live METZ.”

Talbot has, like Edkins four lungs and you know that his band Idles
also produces hair-raising hullabaloo. Perfect match in noise hell.
