MUSIC MONDAYS: THE FAINT
The Faint recently talked with The Creators Project about their new album, "Doom Abuse," and upcoming tour. Highlights include the band's hi-tech upbringing, embracing change of all sorts, and their revamped live production. The most notable modification to their onstage aesthetic is their lighting, which now boasts a flurry of LED lights wrapped in the translucent kit that's self-programmed by the band. Drummer Clark Baechle rattles off all the details in the feature and you can even catch a few sneak peaks at the spectacle set to unfold at Metro on May 23. Read the full feature here and be sure to snag your tickets now!

stream new wye oak lp
Wye Oak's new album, Shriek, comes out April 29, but you can have an early listen if you head over to NPR. You'll notice a difference between this album and their last because they gravitated towards other instruments in order to spark inspiration. After a long tour promoting their previous album, Civilian, vocalist Jenn Wasner was tired and uninspired, so she ventured to other instruments in hopes of sparking something. She did!

Next, you can come to Metro on Thursday, May 13 and do some shrieking of your own as you see Wye Oak live. Buy tickets here.

Teaser Thursdays: G. Love and Special Sauce
Our friends at Time Out Chicago are looking forward to this weekend's G. Love and Special Sauce show at Metro -

"When Philly singer, rapper and guitarist G. Love drops his jivey affectations, there's some real heat in his gangly acoustic hip-hop. The group released a 2011 LP, Fixin' to Die, produced by roots-music entrepreneurs the Avett Brothers. Mr. Love and his crew forge an unusually convincing fusion of styles. Last year, we got more Love, sauce, and laid back tunes on Playlist: The Very Best of G. Love & Special Sauce (The Okeh Years)."

Tickets are still available!

Metro is thrilled to welcome Cold Waves for its third year, a metal and industrial music festival with a good cause.

The lineup will also include Germany’s Die Krupps, Chris Connelly’s (Ministry, Revco) latest project Cocksure, Pitchfork Magazine’s EBM darlings Youth Code, a posthumous performance from Chicago’s Acumen Nation, the awe-inducing Author & Punisher, and original Reconstriction artists SMP.

The festival will also include special guest performances, DJ’s, vendors, silent auctions, raffles and more.
