New compilation 'Automat' is out now...

METZ have shared their grinding cover of Gary Numan's 'M.E.' - tune in now.

The band are fresh from the release of 'Automat', a new compilation gathering together some rare material.

With some UK shows incoming - alongside IDLES, no less - the group have shared a trilogy of covers.

METZ blast through Sparklehorse’s 'Pig' from a Record Store Day 2012 split, while their take on 'I'm A Bug' by the Urinals emerged in 2014.

Perhaps the cream of the crop is their version of Gary Numan's 'M.E.', melding their noise rock fury with his neo-industrial ambitions.

A new video has been crafted for the song - animated by Martin MacPherson, it features a three-headed Pleasure Principle hydra illustrated by Kirin Booth.

Tune in now.
