METZ, the Canadian band that released a pretty excellent record last year and happens to be playing a pretty excellent party at this year’s SXSW festival, has announced a seriously intense run of tour dates. The three-month stint finds the band jetting everywhere from Sweden to Denver and back again. A full list of stops is below.


The band also just premiered a new video for “Wasted,” which features all sorts of distortion and off-kilter blinking, reminding the world that a portrait studio is a pretty messed-up place to be.
