Canadian indie rockers Metric will return on June 12th with their fifth album, Synthetica. It will be self-released by the band’s new imprint, Metric Music International, with help from Mom + Pop Records.

According to an issued press release, the band began work on the LP the day after their final performance behind Fantasies. With the band’s own Jimmy Shaw serving as producer, recording commenced at Toronto’s Grant Studios and concluded at New York’s Electric Lady Studios. It was then mixed by John O’Mahony. Shaw describes the end result as “the culmination of everything we’ve done.”

Stay tuned for an audio preview, as well as additional album details and 2012 tour dates. In the meantime, watch the video for Fantasies’ ”Gimme Sympathy” below.
