Metric began as Emily Haines and James Shaw in 1998. Three years later they were joined by the rhythm section of Josh Winstead and Joules Scott-Key. The first Metric was literally lost and was only released 8 years after it was initially recorded. It was their second album, “Old World Underground Where Are You Now” that introduced Metric and this album went Gold in Canada. The followup, “Live It Out” went Platinum. For their next album, “Fantasies” Metric decided to release on their own album, Metric Music International Inc. throughout the world (excluding Canada where the band remained on Last Gang for one final release.) “Fantasies” would be Metric’s break-through album where (without the benefit of a recognized label) it would sell ¼ million albums, ¾ singles and produce 2 Alternative Rock hits. During this time Metric also began creating music for films with “Black Sheep” for Scott Pilgrim and “Eclipse: All Yours” for the third installment in the Twilight series. The new Metric album, “Synthetica”, is released on MMI world-wide. Also in the past year Metric wrote and produced original music for David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis”.
