Watch METZ’s new Sisyphean Sci-Fi video for “Pulse,” from Atlas Vending Available on Sub Pop

On Oct. 9th, METZ released Atlas Vending, the band’s most dynamic, dimensional, and compelling work of their career. After the stunning video for “A Boat to Drown In” that plays more like a short film, the gorgeous black & white cinematic clip for “Hail Taxi”, the ulterior universe created in the video for “Blind Youth Industrial Park”,  and the quirky and light-hearted video for “No Ceiling.” METZ have now unveiled a Sisyphean sci-fi Saga for their song, “Pulse,” just in time for Halloween.
