Metric announces unreleased Fantasies B-Sides

From Metric:

Click here to listen to two unreleased B-sides from our album "Fantasies" called "Black Sheep" and "The Gates", both of which we're super excited to share with you!
Last year our genre smashing director friend Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) told us he was working on a new movie called "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" starring Michael Cera and asked us if we'd be interested in working with him and legendary Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich on some music for the film. Of course, we said YES!  It just so happened we had the beginnings of a song that suited the project perfectly from our early "Fantasies" recording sessions at Bear Creek, and with a little work we finished the song, called it "Black Sheep" and it became a pivotal track in the movie, which is an adaptation of a graphic novel by Bryan Lee O'Malley that centers around a young group of musicians and is due out later this year.  

If you are a fan of METRIC on Facebook you can unlock an exclusive sneak preview stream of the final version of "Black Sheep" by clicking  here and be among the first to hear the song!

You can also Share it with your friends to unlock a second stream of another early contender for Fantasies, an acoustic song called "The Gates". And finally, if you let us know what you think by commenting on the songs and we will automatically enter you into a drawing to win a free autographed version of Fantasies! Thanks! We hope you like them!

 P.S. "Black Sheep" is distorted goodness. And I can't for the life of me unlock the other track, so someone else will have to tell me how it sounds!
