Strange Peace is the forthcoming third album from Canadian outfit METZ . Due to arrive September 22nd via Sub Pop, the METZ II follow-up is being teased today with a song called “Drained Lake”.

While lead single “Cellophane” evoked sweaty rock ‘n’ roll, this latest offering is all pure menacing noise. Jagged, shredding guitars collide with the barks of frontman Alex Edkins, who sounds like he’s being hunted down. Hear it below.

“Drained Lake” reflects “the constant struggle to know yourself and make sense of your life and surroundings,” Edkins explained in a press statement. “What is my purpose? Holding on to who you are while fending off pressure to bend to what other people want and expect from you.”

METZ have added a few more dates to their upcoming Strange Peace tour, including shows opening for Modest Mouse.
