Two massive Canadian bands, Metric and July Talk, are planning a North American tour next year, and the 12-part Canadian tour will kick off in Victoria.

The two indie-rock giants will be heading to the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre on April 17th, 2019, and tickets will go live this week.

Metric is a four-time Juno award winner, plus a five-time Juno award nominee. The band was also short listed three times for the Polaris Music Prize and co-wrote/performed the score for 2010 Hollywood blockbuster, Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The movie’s music would go on to be nominated for both a Grammy and an American Music Award. The band released its most recent album, Art of Doubt, in September of this year which debuted as the #1 alternative album in Canada and the UK, and #2 best-selling album in Canada overall.

July Talk is relatively new to the scene, but has absolutely hit the ground running. The band has released two albums, and each one has earned them a Juno award. In 2014, they were nominated for Breakthrough Group of the Year, and their debut album spent 13 weeks at #1 at Alt Radio. The band also won the inaugural Hi-Fidelity Prism Prize Award for their music videos by using video art to represent their work in a consistently creative and innovative way.

The Metric with July Talk tour will kick off on April 17th, 2019, in Victoria. Pre-sales begin December 11th on both Metric and July Talk’s websites, and public sales go live December 15th.

And to help get hyped, here’s a trailer for the bands’ joint tour.
