METZ are sharing 2 (two) songs today. The first one, “Come On Down” featuring Joe Talbot (from that band IDLES), which are out now via Sub Pop.

The video for the song was directed by Arturo Baston.

Alex Edkins (METZ) said of the song: “”Come On Down” was originally recorded during the Atlas Vending sessions but never fully finished. During the pandemic I really gravitated towards the idea of collaboration as a way to fill the void left by the loss of live music. I reached out to friends from far and wide in order to get that feeling of community that gigs provide. Joe Talbot (IDLES) is a longtime friend who Metz has shared the stage with many, many times, and this song was a very natural and fun way to catch up with him and do something positive with our time off the road.” Joe Talbot (IDLES) shared this: “Metz have been a band we’ve looked up to since they came into our lives and made things better. I will never forget the first time I saw them or any of the other times. Allowing me to sing with them is a gift and I hope you like it. I love it and I love them. Long live Metz.”

“Heaven’s Gate,” was previously only officially available on a radio station in the video game Cyberpunk 2077 under the pseudonym Blood And Ice. Now it’s here thanks to METZ and Sub Pop.
