You've heard Metric's new single "Youth Without Youth" and maybe you caught the quartet debuting new tracks at Washington State's Sasquatch Fest, but now you can check out the Toronto synth poppers Blade Runner-inspired new album Synthetica. Listen below orover at their SoundCloud page. If you feel the need to skip directly to the song called "Lost Kitten," go for it. No one will judge.

Metric are plenty busy these days, but they're taking care to keep it tight with their fans. Not only are they previewing Synthetica a week before its release and including a download of the album with every purchase of a ticket for their fall tour, but they have also announced a trio of intimate-for-them dates at New York's Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 13, San Francisco's Great American Music Hall on June 19 and the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles on June 20. Tickets for these shows will be available exclusively at Metric's website.
