Toronto minimalist post-punk band METZ have signed to Seattle's Sub Pop Records, and will release a full-length album on the label on Oct. 9. The band just wrapped up a performance at the NXNE Music Festival in Toronto and will play a series of shows on a U.S. METZ tour in August with acts like Archers of Loaf, Kinski and The Men. You can check an album preview in the video above, and then dive deeper in the METZ video for "Negative Space" below. It's like short attention-span theater for your inner noise freak. These guys bring back some of the old school Sub Pop vibes of Mudhoney and Tad, albeit in a more sped-up punk format.
