“Gimme sympathy after all of this is gone. Who would you rather be, The Beatles or The Rolling Stones? Oh seriously, you’re gonna make mistakes, you’re young. Come on baby play me something like Here Comes the Sun.”
It doesn’t get more Canadian than Metric + July Talk with special guest Murray A. Lightburn on April 21 at your Edmonton convention centre!
Metric + July Talk are both undeniable Canadian indie-rock institutions; each in their own right. Both bands were born from an intense amount of grassroots, dues-paying, small club circuit slogging thanks to which both bands eventually found a fan base that embraced their distinctive sound, original songwriting and tireless work ethic. They each create songs that instantly become both wide reaching radio anthems and incredibly personal creations to their fans.
Metric are four time Juno Award winners, five time Juno Award nominees and have short listed three times for the Polaris Music Prize. With the release of their chart topping new single Dark Saturday, Metric broke the record for the artist with both the most #1 singles and the most weeks spent at #1 at Canadian alternative radio. Get a behind the scenes look at Metric on and off stage with their new Tour Diaries episodic series available to watch on Metric’s official YouTube and Facebook.
July Talk has won two Juno Awards for both of their albums. July Talk’s last national tour was entirely sold out. Their debut album + singles “Guns + Ammunition” and “Push + Pull” are all certified Gold and they were awarded the inaugural Hi-Fidelity Prism Prize Award for using video art to represent their work in a consistently creative and innovative way.
