You're idiots for not telling us that Metric were doing the Bloc Party gigs which sold out in like half a millisecond, now I can't go see Metric and sing my little heart out to Monster Hospital. I absolutely hate you. Sort it out.

Metric release their new single 'Empty' on February 12th; it's taken from their much-loved album Live it Out, which is out now. The single will be available as a limited-edition 7" backed with a remix of 'The Police And The Private' by Howie B. Check back next week to see the video for the single, find out more about their new album - which they've just started working on - and about Emily Haines' solo album release in the UK.
DiScuss: What do you expect the video to look like? Have you still got the refrain of 'Monster Hospital' in your head going bam-shick-bam...? Howie B?
