Metric Debut “Too Bad, So Sad”


Metric are in the middle of their tour with Imagine Dragons, so what better time than now to drop another new song from their impending record.

Today, the Canadian group released a third song from their upcoming sixth studio album, Pagans in Vegas. The new track is titled “Too Bad, So Sad” and its so catchy, especially the chorus with its “Oh yeah…wohoo” that’s giving us some serious Muse vibes.

Listen to “Too Bad, So Sad” below.

“Too Bad, So Sad” will join previously released tracks “The Shade” and “Cascades” on Pagans of Vegas which is set to be released on Sept. 18.

Back in February, the four-piece revealed the news that they would be heading out on tour with Imagine Dragons this Summer, but also hinted that they will be hitting the road themselves for their own headlining trek in support of the new record.

Pagans in Vegas is the follow-up to 2012’s Synthetica.
