10 Years Anniversary Tour
THIS SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELED. REFUNDS HAVE BEEN ISSUED. MEAT WAVE WILL STILL BE PERFORMING WITH SPECIAL GUESTS ADDED SOON
2022 celebrates ten years of both METZ as a band and of their critically acclaimed S/T album. The music made by METZ, Alex Edkins (guitar & vocals), Hayden Menzies (drums) & Chris Slorach (bass) has always been difficult to pin down. Their earliest recordings contained nods to the teeming energy of early ‘90s DIY hardcore, the aggravated angularities of This Heat, & the noisy riffing of AmRep’s quintessential guitar manglers, but there was never a moment where METZ sounded like they were paying tribute to the heroes of their youth. The sonic trajectory of their albums captures the journey of a band shedding influences & digging deeper into their fundamental core—steady propulsive drums, chest-thumping bass lines, bloody-fingered guitar riffs, the howling angst of fading innocence.
