METZ announce new album II, continuing the adventures of the characters introduced on the previoius record

Rodney, Wompo, Melissa, Big Ted, and Leslie Fire are back! This beloved cast of characters, introduced back on the first album by METZ in 2012, have returned for a new set of adventures. Did Wompo get into college? Did Melissa find her true father? Is Big Ted going to prison? All this and more will be revealed on May 4 (May 5 in Europe), when Sub Pop puts out II, the second album by METZ.

Though it doesn’t feature any of the crazy cast of characters we know and love, METZ has released a Travis Millard-directed video for “Acetate,” the opening track off II. It’s a track that could be described as “tough” and “hecka tough.” To achieve that tuff sound, the band recorded their new album in various studios in Ontario, having self-produced and mixed with some assistance from engineer Graham Walsh. Watch the video:

Perhaps in order to avoid responding to correspondence concerning fan theories, METZ are doing quite a bit of touring the coming months. Because they are a band that exists in this world, they will be playing SXSW. But they’ll also be doing extensive touring in both North America and Europe, sharing stages with Lightning Bolt, FIDLAR, and Protomartyr. Now, let’s talk about those theories. Rodney and Leslie Fire: siblings? Or warlocks?

01. Acetate
02. The Swimmer
03. Spit You Out
04. Zzyzx
05. IOU

Round 2, Week 5 Results!!!

Friends!!  We got results!!

Round 2, Week 5 was all around a great week at LeBattle.  We got some beatdowns, some nailbiters, and an increased vote count.  A whopping success by any metric!  Week 5 also pushed us just over a third of the way through the round.

Taking Back Sunday made The Ataris obsolete, 16-2.
The Misfits ate the brains of Vendetta Red in a close than anticipated match, 11-7..
Prawn made a shrimp of The Max Levene Ensemble, 10-8.
Scatter the Ashes cremated King Tuff, 11-6.
Cursive signed away Glocca Morra, 14-4.
Gorillaz denied the haters (and Koufax), 15-3.
Cold War Kids assured the destruction of Tera Melos, 13-5.
Queens of the Stone Age stoned White Wives, 16-2.
Blur took the 90s from Everclear, 10-8.
+44 narrowly defeated Crazy Town, 9-8.
Further Seems Forever melted the wax off of the wings of Icarus, 12-6.
Silversun Pickups locked up Minor Threat in the most back and forth match of the week, 10-8.
We Are Scientists did some experiments and shit on Amanda X, 18-1.
Led Zeppelin soared defiantly above Atom & His Package, 15-2.
Thrice chopped off Goldfinger, 13-6.
The Mars Volta make it past I Am the Avalanche, 11-8.
Adolescents proved to me more mature than Lustra, 11-5.
Rx Bandits drugged up Samhain, 12-4.
The Academy Is… schooled Joyce Manor, 9-7.
Sleigh Bells brought their reign of terror to O Pioneers!!!, 12-4.

Even the vote spread this week proved to be quite varied.  Anthony was our post populous voice, casting 17 of 20 winning votes (all except Vendetta Red, Icarus, and Joyce Manor) while our least populous voice was a 6-way tie.  Yes, 6 of the 14 complete ballots had 12 winning votes cast, those ballots belonging to Noel, Paul, Ed, Dan, Neil, and Mary.

A special thank you to all of our voters.

Per the usual, all of the winning acts will be back in Round 3, while we proceed onto Round 2, Week 6.
