METZ is a Canadian punk rock band from Ontario, formed in Ottawa and based in Toronto. The band consists of guitarist and vocalist Alex Edkins, bassist Chris Slorach and drummer Hayden Menzies. Founded in 2008, METZ released its eponymous debut album on the Sub Pop label in 2012. The album was named on the 2013 Polaris Music Prize longlist. Metz performed a "homecoming show" at Lee's Palace in Toronto that year.

When Metz found themselves on tour in San Diego with a couple of hours to spare, Swami John Reis immediately booked some studio time with the hopes of capturing the glorious noise of their collaboration. The four of them came up with 2 songs and now they are friends for life. The sound is reminiscent of an army of sea gulls inside a burning Benihana Of Tokyo.

Last year, Metz, the furious Canadian post-hardcore power trio, gave us their clanging, banging, utterly badass album II. And now, as an encore, they’ve teamed up with a kindred spirit to record a couple of new songs. Swami John Reis is a garage-punk veteran who’s spent decades in bands like Drive Like Jehu, Rocket From The Crypt, and Hot Snakes. For a new Record Store Day 7″, Reis booked himself some studio time with Metz, and the team ended up with two new songs, Let It Rust and Caught Up.

This won't be METZ only RSD release this year, as they previously announced a split 7" with the legendary Mission Of Burma. If you're particular about these sorts of things, you may not find the Reis collaboration on the official Record Store Day list, so availability will probably be pretty limited.
