Metric Tease New Album ‘Pagans in Vegas’ With Slickly Synthesized ‘Cascades’

The Canadian band returns with a full-length on September 18

A few weeks ago, Metric teased their upcoming tour with Imagine Dragons by releasing “The Shade,” a heart-pounding synthesized track that signaled a return three years after the band’s Synthetica. Early this morning, the Canadian outfit dropped “Cascades,” a song they describe as “the pounding heart of our new album.”

That’s right (and talk about burying the lede): Metric has a new LP due on September 18 called Pagans in Vegas. “As always, we encourage you to sing along with the robots,” the band writes in a statement attached to the new cut. “Just keep…going strong…with whatever it is…that’s compelling you on. Xo metriclovesyou.” Preorders for the album include a mysterious “time capsule” package, a cassette version of “The Shade,” and a double-sided vinyl. Stream “Cascades,” and find the Pagans in Vegas track list below.
