Toronto-based noise-punk trio METZ have created a short film entitled Making Strange Peace, which captures the band during the recording process of their new album with engineer Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago. Entertainment Weekly premiered the film, saying, “Strange Peace is not only their best yet, but one of the year’s best rock releases.”

METZ also recently shared a new video for Strange Peace’s lead single “Cellophane”. As described by director Shayne Ehman, the visual depicts a sphere where “consciousness is split, and a world of contrast unfolds. The resulting disembodiment disperses one’s spatial awareness and new kinds of empathy develop. Two become three, and it’s only half the story.”

METZ’s international tour schedule in support of Strange Peace is underway with dates in Halifax, and Vancouver on the horizon. The tour currently runs through December 16th in Houston at Warehouse Live. During that run, METZ will serve as direct support for Modest Mouse yesterday and today.

METZ also took part in a Pitchfork Live performance last week.
