Download “Wet Blanket” from METZ

METZ have expanded their North American & European fall tour (all dates listed below) in support of their upcoming self-titled, full-length debut, available October 9 in North America & Europe, and October 15 in the UK, on CD, LP, and through digital providers such as Amazon, Itunes, as well as right here at subpop.com.

We’d be remiss if we did not remind you of the fact that if you order this record from subpop.com, that order will come with a free, limited-edition 7" single with two tracks not found on the album (“Dirty Shirt” b/w “Leave Me Out”). Additionally, if you happen to pre-order METZ from us, (or from a handful of independent record stores) specifically on LP, you will also receive the limited, colored-vinyl Loser Edition of this record. This is one of those limited edition type of deals, so, you know, first come, first serve as far as availability goes.

On September 11th, The Helio Sequence’s long-awaited fifth album, Negotiations, will finally be available on CD and double LP (pressed at 45 RPM for maximum fidelity, by the way.)

We’re also offering people who pre-order the vinyl LP from SubPop.com the limited, colored-vinyl Loser Edition of the double LP—in this case we’re told it will be clear with dashes of gold. Both the bonus Aces CD and the Loser Edition LP are limited to the first 500 people who pre-order, so act now, as they say. Oh yeah, there’ll be stickers, too.

Niki & The Dove - Tour Dates, Downloads & Videos

Niki & The Dove’s live performance from earlier this summer with YouTube Presents has just been made available on Niki & The Dove’s YouTube channel. Watch them perform Instinct highlights such as “The Fox,” “DJ, Ease My Mind,” “The Drummer,” (and more!) and check out the great band interview with Gawker’s Rich Juzwiak. All these videos can be found now in this Niki & The Dove playlist and will be featured today on YouTube’s Music Page.

Also on the band’s YouTube channel today you’ll find the new fan video for the song “Dance Floor” from Niki & The Dove’s recent mix tape. This video was just made public and as we mentioned, it can be found on the band’s YouTube channel along with a whole host of other great videos. You should probably get over to their channel right away and explore.

We’ve mentioned this before as well, but Niki & The Dove’s forthcoming release, Instinct, is available now over at iTunes and will be available on CD / 2xLP August 7th via Sub Pop. Also worth noting again, though, is that those of you who pre-order Instinct first from subpop.com (and before August 7th!), will not only receive a limited Niki & The Dove tote bag but completed pre-orders for vinyl LP, will also potentially get the limited, Sub Pop Loser Edition version—a colored-vinyl copy of the record, in this case, it’s on crystal-clear colored-vinyl. Both of these offers are in limited supply, so first come, first serve. In other words, order soon!

Finally, in touring news, Niki & The Dove will embark on their first-ever US tour to support Instinct, and this run of dates will begin and ends in Los Angeles, CA, including a September 2nd appearance in Seattle, WA at Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival. We’ve listed the full list of tour dates below.
