METZ - "Get Off" video

The face-ripping Canadian post-hardcore power trio METZ released their awesomely punishing self-titled debut last year, and now their Sub Pop labelmate Chad VanGaalen has directed them a video for the surging, anthemic “Get Off,” one of that album’s standouts. It’s gross, nutso Heavy Metal-style animated comic-book surrealism, and it tells us of the fate of an alien dolphin-dog creature. Check it out below, and also check out METZ’s long string of tour dates for the rest of the year.
