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!

You are so fortunate to live in Florida! Metric isn’t coming to Indiana 😦 but I may try to get down to Kentucky. CANNOT WAIT for the new album, first single is amazing. Very different but I was impressed 🙂
I actually hate living in FL it is SO hot! BUT I would have to say that is the one plus to living here…lots of shows in Orlando! I hope you get to see them on this tour, I have a REALLY good feeling about Synthetica, I was actually surprised by how much I liked “Youth Without Youth”…I was worried it wouldn’t live up to my excitement, but alas Metric has reassured us this new album will be well worth the wait!! SO EXCITED!!
Oohhh I would trade you Indiana any day! You can have all four seasons in an hour 🙂 I was born in Ft. Lauderdale (or Plantation officially), actually but my parents were cruel and moved me here 😦 Lol. I’m feeling pretty good about the new cd also. I’m torn between Fantasies and Grow Up and Blow Away as my favorite albums b/c they are both so amazing! I am 99% sure I’m going to Lollapalooza but I don’t know if I could talk any of my friends into an all Metric show unfortunately b/c they all like country lol. 🙂
well I will be there so we can go together if you want :)! I will be going to that stage very early so im able to get up front! Fantasies is definitely my favorite..I would have to say Grow Up and Blow Away was actually.my least favorite…I just couldn’t get into it.
Yes! Let’s definitely do that! I’mma private message you and give you my info k? Can you do that on wordpress? Lol I’m a rookie! I wanna get to the Metric stage EARLYYY too b/c that’s the band I care about seeing the most. Everyone else is second string 🙂
I don’t know if you can do that on WordPress but i’m on FB I think you “fanned” my page….I tried to send you a message but theres not button..
I think I sent a message to your page 🙂 I didn’t realize I could do that!
