Toronto rockers Metric emphasize guitars on the band’s latest album Art of Doubt, a collection of 12 new songs packed with massive riffs, driving rhythm and raw/smooth vocals that have become their instantly identifiable signature sound. Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Beck, Nine Inch Nails), Metric’s seventh LP addresses a climate of cultural and political anxiety while refusing to give despair the upper hand. In many ways, it’s the most Metric album the band has ever made as Emily Haines, Jimmy Shaw, Joshua Winstead and Joules Scott-Key rediscover their shared love of music and how good they are at making it together. “This felt like the culmination of a lifetime spent playing together and trusting each other and going for it,” Shaw says.
With a career that spans over twenty years, Zoé has released six studio albums, two live albums, and an MTV Unplugged, as well as EPs and compilations of their greatest hits. Last year, Zoé successfully premiered the documentary “Panoramas” and also released several of their albums on vinyl. To date, more than 3 million fans have seen Zoé live and they have sold more than 1.5 million records, earning several Gold and Platinum albums, plus a Diamond + Triple Platinum record by MTV Unplugged Musica de Fondo. In addition, they have received nominations and recognitions from the Academy of Sciences and the Arts of Music of Spain, Latin American Act / MTV European Music Awards, MTV Latin America Awards, 2 Latin Grammys, OYE Awards!, Lunas del Auditorio, 40 PP Awards, Telehit Awards and Premio Lo Nuestro Awards, among others.
