Metz unveil thunderous new single "Hail Taxi"

18 August 2020, 15:14 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Metz have returned with new song "Hail Taxi", the second single to be shared from their forthcoming album Atlas Vending.

"Hail Taxi" lands after last month's lead single "A Boat to Drown In", and is accompanied by a visual directed and produced by A.F. Cortes.

Metz's Alex Edkins says of their latest outing, ""Hail Taxi" is about looking back. The lyrics deal with the idea of reconciling or coming to terms with who you were and who you've become."

Atlas Vending features co-production from Ben Greenberg (Uniform), and was engineered and mixed by Seth Manchester (Daughters, Lingua Ignota, The Body) at Machines with Magnets in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

Edkins adds of the LP, "Change is inevitable if you’re lucky. Our goal is to remain in flux, to grow in a natural and gradual way. We’ve always been wary to not overthink or intellectualise the music we love but also not satisfied until we’ve accomplished something that pushes us forward."

"Hail Taxi" is out now. Metz's Atlas Vending album is due to arrive via Sub Pop Records on 9 October, and is available to pre-order now.
