Metz have announced a new rarities collection, ‘Automat’

Metz have announced a new rarities collection, ‘Automat’.

A collection of non-album singles, B-sides, and rarities dating back to 2009, it’ll be released on 12th July via Sub Pop.

The band’s Alex Edkins shares: "The idea to release Automat came after realising our early 7" singles were being sold online for upwards of $60 bucks a pop. We wanted to make those songs available and affordable to anyone who might want them in the physical format. What started as reissuing a couple of 45s, quickly morphed into an entire LP, compiling rarities, demos and alternate takes from over the years.”

“‘Pure Auto’ is METZ at our most tongue in cheek,” he continues. “There are many winks and many nods (autonomy, me, me, me, me, me, for example) but ultimately it’s about being a control freak; fighting the urge to constantly steer the ship. Originally released as the B-side to the ‘Eraser’ 7" it has never been played live, but for some reason still manages to be one of our collective favourites. It was written and recorded very quickly after completing the II album sessions and came out of a surge of creativity/excitement/relief following a particularly intense and time-consuming album.”
