In 2021, CHAI made their Sub Pop debut with WINK, securing their position as “a professional purveyor of whimsy” (The New York Times). Tonight, Friday, July 8th (at 8 pm PT/ 11 pm ET) they are sharing the animated, 16-bit official video for “HERO JOURNEY,” their new single and collaboration with Domino Recording Company act Superorganism.
CHAI says of the Superorganism collaboration, “We held a mutual liking and love for one another’s music and eventually were invited to open for them on their UK and Europe Tour. From recording while on the tour bus to even joining in as guests at their shows in Japan! So many memories we share! Having played around with music together in the past makes this collaboration that much more special.
“This song is all about Hero’s coming in all forms! and how amazing that is! Superorganism has reached all nationalities and ages, recognizing those differences and embracing them. The perfect fit for this song. As a post-WINK release and at a time where a new CHAI is brewing, this song is nothing but perfect. It screams Summer! So stay tuned! More CHAI to come!”
YUUKI adds, “Is the job of a “justice-seeking” HERO only to defeat “evil”? Perhaps the opposite of “justice” isn’t “evil”, but rather “another form of justice”?! Me and mine, you and yours…what each of us calls “justice”, should be able to dance amongst one other! That HERO you all see, is who CHAI wants to be. Gather all your friends you love cus’ we’re going to fly again today! It’s that type of song!”
Superorganism’s Orono offers this, “Category is drag queen superhero realness… and you bet we served it on a big, fat platter for this one. Sugary explosion of nothing but pure and refined girl bossery! Anyway so stoked that we finally got to collab with our friends… more to come 🐸”

Tickets for these shows go on sale Friday, July 22nd at 10 am (local).

Upon the release of METZ’s self-titled debut in October 2012, the album was met with a flurry of praise from the likes of Pitchfork (“29 minutes of pure but artfully rendered chaos.” / “Best New Music)” and TheNew Yorker (“rude, severe, and excellent. They make rock music, all of it loud, most of it precise without feeling checked.”)
Later that month, METZ appeared at that year’s CMJ Festival in New York, earning even more raves for their cacophonous live show from New York Times (“a three-man band from Canada, steamrollered through the festival, blasting brawny punk and metal guitar riffs that generated the festival’s most enthusiastic buzz.”) and Stereogum (“What METZ managed this year deserves salute: The Sub Pop trio dialed into the spirit and muscular thrust of post-hardcore’s heyday so completely as to make a familiar sound feel fresh, sheerly by virtue of so perfectly recreating it. METZ’s sets were brutal and sharp, their movements about stage kinetic and crisp, their commitment to their moment so complete to be undeniable.”).
METZ remained on the road well into 2013 when they took SXSW by storm and then made stops at major European festivals such as Roskilde, Primavera, Oya, and OFF. Over the last decade METZ have come to be known for their high energy live shows and you can expect the anniversary dates to be as bombastic as ever.
Kiwi Jr. play ping-pong in the new lyric video for “The Extra Sees The Film,” a new highlight from Chopper, the group’s forthcoming new album.
Jeremy Gaudet says of the new single, “This song is quite literally a change of pace for us. It’s more chill and a bit darker than previous Kiwi Jr. recordings. It’s a song about whether or not you’re the hero of your own story, or a smaller part of something bigger. It’s bragging that you’re in a movie and inviting all your friends and family, but when it screens, you’re barely an extra in it. A lot of our songs deal with reckoning, this one in particular. It’s what happens after you’ve told your story and the truth comes out later, and everything unravels.”
On August 12th, 2022, Kiwi Jr. will release Chopper, their third album, worldwide on CD/LP/CS/DSPs through Sub Pop, with the exception of Canada through the band’s Kiwi Club imprint. The album was recorded and produced in Toronto by Sub Pop labelmate Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Operators).
Chopper’s pre-release singles “Night Vision,” and “Unspeakable Things,” have earned Kiwi Jr. early praise for their new direction in sound.
Stereogum says “‘Unspeakable Things’ is a jaunty and synth-happy song, and it takes me right back to the mid-’00s blog-rock days,” and CLASH called it a “blaster” that’s “a dose of all-out fun.” Meanwhile, Brooklyn Vegan calls “Night Vision” “a slashing slice of post-punk…it finds them taking a darker turn that may put those annoying Pavement comparisons to rest for good.”
Kiwi Jr. resumes touring in support of Chopper this Friday, July 22nd, with a show in Montreal at Bar Le Ritz PDB. The live dates currently run through Sunday, September 25th in Amsterdam, Netherlands at Paradiso. Sub Pop labelmates Weird Nightmare will also co-headline Kiwi Jr.’s North American shows (through Sunday, July 31st, select dates). Additional live dates to be announced soon.

What People Are Saying About TV Priest: “A record that exposes a new element of vulnerability that makes no sacrifice to their gritty, unshackled punk sound. TV Priest’s hearts are not just on their sleeves but served up on a platter for us to enjoy.” ★★★★ - DORK
“Flare-ups of vibrant noise… taut rhythms and brief but potent guitar flashes are occasionally reminiscent of Jon Spencer or J. Mascis. My Other People sees TV Priest continue to map out their own increasingly intriguing identity.” - Kerrang!
“Post-punk propulsion from the London four-piece, with a vocal like a prolonged howl of pain, rage and love.” - The Sunday Times
“The harsh, jagged guitar figures of Alex Sprogis and the heavyweight rhythm section of Nic Bueth (bass) and Ed Kelland (drums) once again create a wall of sound that vocalist Charlie Drinkwater plows through with his powerful voice and blank-verse lyrics, just as they did on their first long-player. That’s not all they can do, though, and My Other People sees the band adding additional levels to their game…They’re growing into a more accomplished and interesting band; their obvious talent makes them an act only a fool would ignore.” - All Music
“Dynamically, musically and sonically, everything hits harder and TV Priest show that they have clear staying power that transcends the current scene they come from.” - Birthday Cake For Breakfast
“This is an accomplished work that digs not from the catalogue of Joe Talbot, more Nick Cave, Jon Spencer and a small portion of The Smiths with the angst of the lyrics taking a bit of the old cantankerous Mark E Smith. All brewed in one pot they have created their own little gap and who am I to steal their glory of writing some seriously good angular post punk nuggets?” - Louder Than War
“There’s big band style vocals with a blue collar delivery, there are rhythmic structures and there’s an intense display of sonic brilliance. You can’t say TV Priest is just a post-punk or an indie rock band after listening to this album. They push the envelope while keeping it genuine to themselves and their audience. (8.5/10)” - Northern Transmissions
“There’s a strong crackle of big-collared ’90s nylon shirting – Tindersticks, Pulp, Nick Cave, Morphine – as singer Charlie Drinkwater darkens the corners: “Off that map there are monsters / off that map there are madmen.” [“Limehouse Cut”] - MOJO
“On these new tracks, vocalist Charlie Drinkwater continues to resemble Joe Talbot, but I can just as easily hear Nick Cave, Jim Morrison, and Protomartyr’s Joe Casey in those bellows. His bandmates sound spry and adventurous, brimming with ideas and kinetic energy.” [“Bury Me In My Shoes”] - Stereogum
“The music has a real wielding tone throughout buzzing guitars and yelled vocals offering itself up with plenty of on the side feels.” [“Bury Me In My Shoes”] - Closed Captioned
“Frontman Charlie Drinkwater makes a startling statement. “I’m going to take these clothes off now,” he sings, offering up an image that seems to reveal the very core of this stunning new offering.” [“One Easy Thing”] - Far Out
“Charlie Drinkwater’s vulnerable side comes to the fore in ‘One Easy Thing’, with a voice that lends itself as capably to emotive ballads as it does to hook-heavy punk” [“One Easy Thing”] - Riot Mag
“Thoughtful and metronomic in equal measure, the plucking guitar chords at the forefront of the sonics with a mesmeric rhythm which is almost hypnotic in its delivery.” - [“Limehouse Cut”] -Backseat Mafia
“Stark and sinister, this track is a Nick Cave-esque lament on urban displacement and a longing for beautiful landscapes.” - [“Limehouse Cut”] - The Times
“Beautifully sparse in it’s opening refrain, the track points to a change of direction for the band. Sonically, the new single seems lighter than their previous output, aligning more with the booming British Post-Punk scene than with their krautrock inspired roots.” [“One Easy Thing”] - When The Horn Blows
“The song is dark, a rock with a riff that is pleasant, Charlie Drinkwater’s vocals over the top are reminiscent of Johnny Cash. The song evokes the feeling of exhaustion without being exhausting to listen to.” [“One Easy Thing”] - ASBO Magazine

You can now hear Built to Spill’s “Spiderweb,” a classic-sounding, guitar-driven jam reminiscent of early REM and Dinosaur Jr., and a stellar new offering from Built to Spill’s When The Wind Forgets Your Name.
