Noisy band METZ have just announced their second album, II. It's due out 4/5th May on Sub Pop – the tracklist for the album is below.

You can listen to the first very sludgy, deliciously distorted track to be taken from the album below, 'Acetate'. Although it's not the video, the song comes with a pancake-day-themed video, featuring someone making crazy pancake mix of flowers, snails, a glowing crystal and a lot of dice.

They've also announced a lot of tour dates – check 'em out at the end of this post.
