Metric is Emily Haines, Jimmy Shaw, Joshua Winstead and Joules Scott-Key. An independent rock and roll band empowered by their innovative approach to the music business, Metric self-released their last album Fantasies on five continents without the benefit of a label and earned themselves multiple radio hits around the world with songs such as "Gimme Sympathy," "Gold Guns Girls," and "Help I'm Alive." They went on to sell over a million singles and 500,000 albums worldwide. Their fifth full-length studio album Synthetica is currently available. Sonically futuristic yet organic, this album sounds like the culmination of all the music the band has made in their 10 years together.
