Metric’s Mystery Hotline Revealed


“No summer concert experience is complete without a cassette tape to remember it by”

For the past few days, Metric has been teasing fans on social media with photographs of old telephones. But after five long days of wonder, the mystery is finally revealed. The band released an old school infomercial to announce the preorder for their new record Pagans in Vegas to be released in the fall, with emphasis on their cassette tape EP, “The Shade.”

The infomercial provides a hotline, (1-844-66METRIC) which, if you’re okay with Metric elevator music, will take you “back to the future of music.” The limited edition cassette is available in four different colours and is autographed by Metric (while supplies last), or you can pick one up at one of their shows.
