In case you didn’t know, May 1st Metric‘s upcoming album Synthetica became available for pre-order! You can pre-order the album in several different ways, Digital, Vinyl, CD, or the coolest way: The Synthetica Stereo Box! We all know what Digital Downloads, Vinyl, and CD’s are so I am going to skip right over that to tell you about this Stereo Box (because it is juts TOO cool!). The Synthetica Stereo Box originated from a Buenos Aires artist Andres Guerberoff. Emily proposed that Andres and the band come together to create a sort of diorama box that also holds music…THUS THE SYNTHETICA STEREO BOX WAS BORN!
Inside the box there will be the Synthetica CD, a 20 pg booklet w/ mirrored mylar insert, 11x3D photographic slides (one for each song), instruction manual. The 20 booklet contains the photos from a group of architects in the 1960’s who came up with dystopian views on how the future would look, these are the photos that also inspired the whole Synthetica Album!
Only 500 have been made and EACH AND EVERY ONE will be numbered and signed by THE BAND THEMSELVES (is it getting a little bit awesome in here or is it just Metric?! lol). The second I found out about this awesome stereo box I bought one immediately, I have to asmit I am MOST excited about the autographs but how freakin’ cool is this box?
Here is a video of Emily Haines describing the Synthetica Stereo Box, and what to expect when you get yours!!
Take a look at the actual box below!
