COVID-19-related news!
As of Tuesday, March 24, 2020, following an order from the Governor of WA State...
the Sub Pop Warehouse is closed until further notice.
This means we will not be shipping out any Mega Mart orders until we're able to re-open.
You can, and we think SHOULD, please still order stuff from the Mega Mart, especially upcoming album pre-orders.
But we won't be able to ship anything until we get the all-clear to open back up.
We will provide updates as soon as we have them.
Thank you very much for what we hope to be your continued patronage. Stay safe out there, gang.

Sub Pop Mega Mart

METZ M.E.

Type:
Single
Release Date:
August 20, 2019
Catalog No:
SP1336
Label:
Sub Pop

On July 12th, 2019 Sub Pop released Automat, a collection of METZ non-album singles, B-sides, and rarities dating back to 2009, available on LP for the first time, and including the band’s long out-of-print early (pre-Sub Pop) recordings. It’s a chronological trip through the lesser-known material of METZ, the widely-adored and delightfully noisy 3-piece punk band from Toronto, ON.

The vinyl LP format of Automat included an exclusive bonus 7” single of METZ interpretations of three diverse cover songs, a glimpse of their wide-ranging and excellent taste. And, on Aug. 20 these three bonus tracks will be available in digital services everywhere. Rejoice! And then also go listen to: a cover of Sparklehorse’s “Pig,” from a very limited 2012 Record Store Day split single originally released by Toronto’s Sonic Boom record shop; “I’m a Bug,” a cover of the Urinals’ art-punk classic, originally released on YouTube (not an actual record label) in 2014; and METZ’s previously unreleased rendition of Gary Numan’s “M.E.” You can also watch the mesmerizing video for “M.E,” featuring a three-headed Pleasure Principle hydra illustrated by Kirin Booth and animated by Martin MacPherson by clicking here.
