Seventh studio album from Canadian indie rock veterans Metric! Art of Doubt is the band's first full-length offering (not counting the live album Dreams So Real) since 2015's Pagans In Vegas. In the interim, band members Emily Haines and James Shaw worked on the latest Broken Social Scene album and Haines released a long-awaited follow up to her 2006 solo record. The band's assorted side projects are fine when we're in need of more intimate and/or experimental, frenetic fare, but we've been waiting with baited breath for another slab of the sprawling, stadium-sized indie anthems that are inherent in Metric records, and that's exactly what we get on The Art Of Doubt. Dive straight in to the sheer motorik-driven power blast of "Dark Saturday," but stick around for the tender "Underline The Black," new wave singalong "Risk" and the cavernous title track. This is the indie exclusive double vinyl pressing on white colored vinyl.
