I was wondering what was going on with Metric. Apparently, Emily Haines went away to Buenos Aires (see: embedded video below - it explains everything).
Metric is set to release their fourth album on April 14th. And I do like the song "Help, I'm alive" but I'm hoping that the rest of the album isn't completely like that song. You can download the acoustic version of "Help, I'm Alive" from their official website.
