FANTASIES earned METRIC "Album of the Year" and "Band of the Year" at the Canadian Juno Awards, and the band finished 2010 with their music featured in two major Hollywood films including Scott Pilgrim vs The World and the Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
The Twilight soundtrack was nominated for a Grammy Award and landed METRIC on the Academy Award nomination short list in 2011 for the theme song they co-wrote with composer Howard Shore.
The band started in 1998 as a duo formed by Haines and Shaw. After releasing an EP titled Mainstream EP, they changed the band's name to Metric, after a sound that was programmed by Shaw on his keyboard in 1998. Haines and Shaw also perform with the band Broken Social Scene.
In 1996, Haines has released the album Cut in Half and Also Double.
Their third studio album Grow Up and Blow Away was recorded in 2001 and it was initially planned as their debut album.
The album was delayed for many years and it was finally released in June 26, 2007, with some changes in track list. Metric's fourth album Fantasies was released in April 7, 2009.
Hard rocking title track Synthetica offers an epic conclusion to suspenseful album opener Artificial Noctune.
The band won two awards at 2013 Juno Awards: "Alternative Album of the Year" for Synthetica and "Producer of the Year" for James Shaw.
The art director/designer/photographer Justin Broadbent also won an award for "Recording Package of the Year" for Synthetica.
METRIC will be on tour throughout 2012 and have already announced select tour dates in North America, UK, Europe and Australia.
