Canadian noise punks announce five-date UK tour in October; listen to track from forthcoming debut full-length below

METZ, Toronto's very best dealers of feedback-addled, rabid post-punk, will be setting foot on these shores for a short tour this October.

So enamoured with Metz's visceral blasts are we that we're sponsoring their set at the Old Blue Last on October 24, which rounds off the tour - tickets are free, with support from Cold Puma. Here are the dates in full:

Sun 21 - The Library, Leeds
Mon 22 - Art School, Glasgow
Tue 23 - Kraak Gallery, Manchester
Wed 24 - Old Blue Last, London
