For an alternative rock/indie band to become a trending topic on Twitter, it takes a legion of fans. Such is the case with Metric today. This little band from Toronto, Canada has been quietly amassing fans since their debut way back in 1998.

Today, marks the release of their first single titled “Youth Without Youth” from their forthcoming album Synthetica, due in stores June 12th.

Most widely known for their 2008 international smash single “Help I’m Alive,” and their 2010 single “Gold Guns Girls,” Metric is due for a powerful follow-up. The band announced that the new album’s focus is on “strong beats and futuristic, yet organic sounds.

In a letter posted on Metric’s website, singer and frontwoman Emily Haines said “Synthetica is about staying home and wanting to crawl out of your skin from the lack of external stimulation…about forcing yourself to confront what you see in the mirror… about being able to identify the original in a long line of reproductions. It’s about what is real vs what is artificial.”
