METZ shares a new video for “Framed by the Comet’s Tail“


METZ has shared a new video for their song “Framed by the Comet’s Tail”, directed by the band’s drummer, Hayden Menzies. The visual companion to a personal favorite track of Menzies’ from Atlas Vending was created within a set of self-imposed limitations; it was all shot by Menzies on his phone, edited at home, with no borrowed content. He says of the video “It’s not a literal interpretation of the song by any means, but a document of random firing synapses of the mind during isolation.” Watch the video now
 
Atlas Vending is METZ’s most dynamic, dimensional, and compelling work of their career, and is now available worldwide from Sub Pop.
