On July 12, punk rockers METZ will release Automat, an album of rarities, B-sides, and more from their career. One of the tracks on the collection will be "Dry Up." Watch the music video above on YouTube.
Directed by Alex Edkins, the video shows distorted pictures of the band's travels and live performances. "Dry Up" compliments the visuals with a ferocious intensity of distorted guitars and screaming vocals.
In a statement shared by Consequence of Sound, Alex Edkins shared:
METZ have been making music together for over 10 years... It’s been a blur. We’ve very rarely allowed ourselves to look backward. We’ve been hyper-focused on always moving forward at breakneck speed, perpetually fixated on what’s next. The video for "Dry Up," as well as the Automat album, is an attempt to pause, take a breath, look backward and take stock of our past. It’s intended to express how grateful we are to be able to do what we do. It’s a love letter to the incredible places we’ve traveled, the beautiful people we’ve met, to community, music, and friendship.
Pick up Automat on Amazon.
The band will head out on a tour through Europe later this month. For concert tickets and more, check out the METZ Zumic artist page.
