Metric have released the video for their first single ‘The Shade’ off forthcoming album Pagans In Vegas.

The video contains various images of environmental scenes as well as shots of the band performing.

Lead singer Emily Haines says of the clip:

“Pictures, videos and graphics permeate our consciousness all hours of the day. That’s what we wanted to capture in ‘The Shade’. Humanity and nature caught in patterns and loops of beauty, destruction and decay. When I say “I want it all,” this is what I’m talking about. Look at the world around you. Don’t shy away from what you see, even if it’s ugly. Own up to yourself and be prepared to be thrown your share of shade. ”

Pagans In Vegas is released via Create/Control / MMI on September 18th.
