Watch The New METZ Video For “Eraser” (via Brooklyn Vegan)

Here now for your audio-visual stimulation is the frenetic new video for forthcoming METZ single, “Eraser,” directed by Nathan Joyner and starring Alia Jyawook of the San Diego band Hot Nerds.
Brooklyn Vegan had this to say, “
It visually matches the song’s pummeling sonic assault, beat for beat” (see video premiere January 7th).”
METZ’s 2016 headlining world tour resumes this Saturday, January 9th in Boston at the Sinclair and runs through February 20th in Beijing, China at Mao Livehouse.
