METRIC to Perform at Radio City Music Hall September 23rd
Published: May 15, 2012 - 8:06am
MSG Entertainment and The Bowery Presents welcome Metric to Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, September 23, 2012 at 8PM. This show is in support of the band’s fifth, full-length studio album, Synthetica.
Synthetica was produced by Jimmy Shaw and mixed by John O’Mahony. Shaw describes Synthetica’s enthralling balance of futuristic and organic sound on the new record as “[...] the culmination of everything we’ve done. We’ve always had a sound in our heads that we hoped to realize. We finally heard it coming back out of the speakers this time.” Haines first envisioned the word “Synthetica” as the name for a particularly resilient skin-job from Blade Runner, a female replicant who voices an inner monologue of all your human imperfections. “If you imagine a nightmarishly fake version of me as a pop star, that’s her,” she says. “And this record was about me saying, I’m going to give more to the music than ever, but there’s no way I’m going to turn into someone like that.” As she sings on the album’s hard-rocking title track; “We’re all the time confined to fit the mold / But I won’t ever let them make a loser of my soul.”
For every ticket purchased for Metric’s Radio City show will come with a download of “Youth Without Youth” (to be delivered to your inbox shortly after purchase) as well as a digital copy of Synthetic and 5 Synthetic Reflections tracks, to be delivered on June 12.
WHEN: SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 23 @ 8PM
WHERE: RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL
