Re: Metric

The new album can be preordered (on vinyl and CD) from the ilovemetric app. As I write this anyway, it's only on the app -- not the web shop. Regardless of format, deliveries are estimated for July.

Re: Metric

You can pre-order on the regular site now too. I think the app just jumped the gun by one day.

I pre-ordered it on Amazon - just the regular edition.

Re: Metric

They were saying July for the vinyl, which seemed a little too quick to me, but they quickly amended it to a more realistic September.

Re: Metric

This came out this past Friday. I think it’s their best in years. Last few albums have always had a good song or two, but the songs on this album are all great. And the first song Doomscroller - 10 minutes long! And it’s really good.

No Atmos unfortunately, but I hope it gets upgraded to that.

I don't like the 10 minute first song, but the rest is pretty good.

I think Doomscroller is their best song in years. Seems almost like a next step in their evolution.

Re: Metric

Metric is one of my favorite bands. I pre-ordered the vinyl for Formentera. September seems so far away now. I still need to do more listens, but solid album so far.

Re: Metric




Yes, itís true, there IS a Formentera II. The part two companion album of ✨nine songs✨ is coming out Oct 13, and today we are releasing the first single, ďJust The Once.Ē

The only way I seem to be able to describe ďJust The OnceĒ is to call it "regret disco,Ē which by the way I have decided and can say first hand from personal experience is 100% for sure a thing. It's a song for when you need to dance yourself clean. Because isn't it amazing how easily you can let things slide as a moral human being? Also lyrically itís just basically me noticing the whole time how "once" is a simple word with many meanings, a word that plays a game of opposites.


Once can mean once-upon-a-time and refer to a moment in the past, or it can mean someday, once something happens. And as for doing something only once versus doing something once in a while, well, I think we all know how vast the difference is between those two meanings.


Iím so happy this day has arrived and you can finally hear something from this album! It was hard to keep the existence of Formentera II a secret, but I really wanted to announce this one year after we released Formentera, maybe because it gave me some sense of closure or symmetry, who knows. Sometimes I feel like Iím in a damn maze and maybe you do too, or maybe you have it totally together, or maybe you feel like youíre always floating somewhere in between. Wherever youíre at right now, I am here to guide you to the ⚡️rocking⚡️ conclusion of our Formentera I & II odyssey.


All eyes on Oct 13 obvs but yes you can pre-order Formentera II as well as the full double album Formentera I & II on vinyl now. We have several limited edition color versions and all the beautiful things for you. Iím told quantities are limited, so if you want to have it head on over to ilovemetricstore.com


Formentera Forever

Re: Metric



Goods song. I feel like it would go towards the end of the set's encore right before they bust into Black Sheep. I also really dig the orange filter -- reminds me of Blade Runner 2049.



They were also on Colbert earlier this week performing Just the Once:

Re: Metric

They shipped my copy of the new album last week, but it's not getting to me until late next week!
GRRR...
I've had records from UK and Australia arrive quicker!
