    Between frontwoman Emily Haines' heartbreaking side-project Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton and guitarist Jimmy Shaw's new outfit Bang Lime, who has time for writing Metric songs? Somehow those multi-tasking Canadian rockers did it. In the little down time between existing albums and tours, the band has prepared what will be their fourth, as yet untitled, studio album. To give these songs their "stage-legs" the band has also announced a U.S. tour which will be a "road-test" for the new material.

    Though the band has recently released Grow Up and Blow Away, their long out of print 1999 debut, this will be their latest album since 2006's Live It Out. As for the tour, Haines says, "We've missed our fans. We haven't toured in North America for about 18 months and it felt like time to return. We're really excited to play the new songs for our live audience before we press the record."
