On the eve of the launch for their sophomore album, Live It Out, Metric set off on what would be their most successful tour to date. A 100% sold out tour of Canada and packed houses across the United States made people sit up and take notice of this band.

The first single, Monster Hospital, has graced the television and radio all fall, earning them a performance spot at The Edge’s 2005 CASBY Music Awards. The second single, The Police And The Private, is waiting patiently in the wings to take on the airwaves early next year. Stay tuned.

Onsale Saturday 10:00am!
