Metric brings The Doomscroller Tour to Nashville!

Metric are a band with an eclectic, adventurous outlook, whose music encompasses elements of synth pop, new wave, dance-rock, and electronica and whose hometown has vacillated between Toronto, Montreal, New York, Los Angeles, and London over the course of the group’s existence. Metric’s story began in 1998, when vocalist/keyboardist Emily Haines met guitarist James Shaw in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Although born in New Delhi, Haines — the daughter of Paul Haines, a Canadian-American poet best known for his collaboration with jazz artist Carla Bley — had moved to town by the age of three. While studying at the Etobicoke School of the Arts, a high school for aspiring artists in Toronto, she met fellow students Amy Millan and Kevin Drew, future members of Stars and Broken Social Scene. After attending university in Vancouver and Montreal, she returned to Toronto in 1997 and eventually crossed paths with the British-born Shaw, who’d relocated to Toronto following three years of study at the Juilliard School of Music in New York City. Haines and Shaw discovered they were musically simpatico and began writing songs together.

They also made a splash in the world of cinema, scoring a prime spot on the Grammy-nominated soundtrack to The Twilight Saga: Eclipse with the theme song “Eclipse (All Yours)” and contributing a song (the unreleased track “Black Sheep”) to Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley actually took inspiration from Haines and Metric when creating the character Envy Adams in the books; in the film she and her band the Clash at Demonhead (with actress Brie Larson singing over the original backing track) play “Black Sheep.” In 2011, the band teamed with Academy Award-winning film composer Howard Shore on the soundtrack for David Cronenberg’s adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel Cosmopolis. The movie premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, right around the time the group’s fifth album, the stadium-friendly Synthetica, was released on the Mom & Pop Music label. It became their first album to hit the Top 50 in the U.S., all the way at number 12, and climbed to number two in Canada. During a scheduled break that followed touring, Haines began writing on acoustic guitar while on retreat in Nicaragua, while Shaw worked mostly with his synth in Toronto. They came together at the Adam Yauch-founded Oscilloscope Labs to record the LP Pagans in Vegas, a more meditative, synth-driven album released in September of 2015. Haines headed off to record another solo album, 2017’s Choir of the Mind, then Metric reconvened in their own Giant Studio in Toronto with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Beck) to work on their seventh record. They settled on a gritty, more guitar-driven sound and took a step back from the pop mainstream on 2018’s Art in Doubt, which was released on MMI/Crystal Math Music.
