Back In the Studio

September 8, 2009

First day back in the (recording) studio after the art show madness is over…I was working on music from home for the past few weeks. Good stuff coming along. I’ll post some pictures or something soon. Today we started a song that sounds like Queen meets AC/DC meets hardcore techno. It was pretty ridiculous, but I think it might turn into something cool later. Then again, it could just stay the same as it is…kinda silly.

PS: shouts out to for the mention:

PPS: I love checking out new music on hype machine. Glad they caught wind of the Metric remix:

    That sounds interesting and I’m curious about the sound….
    I can’t imagine it…

    Good luck πŸ˜‰

    Hey Mike. I love the GGG remix! Good work!

    I’m so glad to know you’re back in the studio. Can’t wait to listen to the new music. By the way, great way to describe the song you’re working on. It’s impossible to imagine how it sounds like. HA!

    Yeah, post some pictures! I really like your studio pics. You could also post some previews of the new songs couldn’t you? HAHA yeah, I know… I’m asking too much!

    Take care man!

  8. Shinodabestfriend on September 10, 2009 at 5:27 am

    hmmm.. sounds great Michael.. as a longtime fan, I hope this will be a nice rock album as your others. please, don’t sound like MTM. one time is enough….

  9. DoubleGJ on September 10, 2009 at 3:03 am

    Man, I love weird genre mixtures. This is exactly why I began to listen to you guys and this is why I’m simply in love with Rabbit Junk now (their stuff sometimes mixes completely unrelated genres and then gives them sheer POWER). If you’re just fooling around, please at least keep the results of such toying around for possible later use! πŸ˜›

    also, silly is the new cool

  10. Ezza on September 10, 2009 at 1:06 am

    is it a fun silly or just silly silly? lol um whats the go with the street team site i cant seem to be able to check out how many points i have…..

  11. JRock4589 on September 9, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    1) I love the pictures you post πŸ˜€
    2) I’m glad to hear you’re back in the studio, anyway we can listen to a snippet or two?

  15. leiza on September 9, 2009 at 3:04 pm

    yummy. cant wait to hear more music from you guys. especially if it sounds like THAT! lp can def afford to be more spontaneous, imo.

    and don’t google yourself too often. reading your own press can ruin you, or so i’ve heard.

  16. Ranger111133 on September 9, 2009 at 2:59 pm

    can’t wait for the album to come out sounds like its coming along pretty sweet….songs u’ve described so far seems like they could b definetly amazing

  17. Madlen on September 9, 2009 at 2:23 pm

    This sounds weird and cool at the same time:DThank you for the update…I really appreciate you giving us info and pics:)I should totally get an account on…seems like a cool place πŸ˜€

  18. Deftones06 on September 9, 2009 at 1:03 pm

    Welcome back in the studio Mike!
    I’m going to be totally off-topic (sorry), but I have to talk about a terrible condition which affects millions of people, mainly in the music world. Do you know about tinnitus, Mike? It’s a permanent ringing in your ears, and, in most cases, it will never disappear once you have it. The majority of tinnitus are caused by loud music exposure (Ipod High Volume/Live Shows..). Mike, you’re a worldfamous musician and a nice guy (MFR…), so I thought it would be great if you posted a prevention message about tinnitus on I mean, if you say it, people will listen to you and protect their ears. Music can save a life, but if too loud, it can also destroy it!

  19. cuz on September 9, 2009 at 12:59 pm

    Sounds good! Will be nice to see some photos. Take care πŸ™‚

  20. spraypaintNinkpens on September 9, 2009 at 10:56 am

    I got to be honest, that sounds like an awful combination. It worries me that Rubin is producing this album again…

  21. Anstice on September 9, 2009 at 10:43 am

    Hey Mike. Wanna know something creepy? It’s 9/9/09. September has 9 letters. Wednesday has 9 letters. It’s the 252nd day of the year: 2+5+2=9. Weird stuff. Hmm.

  22. Manongross on September 9, 2009 at 10:29 am

    Hi Mike, i have two questions…
    1 – Are you working a song for LP or your REMIXES?
    2 – Do you have a Video singin In Between I SIMPLY LOVE THIS SONG !!!!!
    And all the videos who i see are a quality very poor….

  23. spaniel on September 9, 2009 at 10:25 am

    Super!!! I like it. This track inspires me. Thank you, Mike for constant giving attention to us! We are looking forward new songs!=)

  24. The_Black_Hawk on September 9, 2009 at 10:18 am

  26. rockermeg on September 9, 2009 at 9:36 am

    Wow…I cannot imagine that. That’s a good sign
    I’m so excited to hear the new stuff, work hard!
    Metric must be pretty pleased with all of this no?

  27. LPmadman on September 9, 2009 at 8:57 am

    I don’t know anything about music but with simply added of hardcore techno, it will sound very surprising coz I think you guys need something new with different strains material for the next album, you know, to avoid a monotonous beats.and to assure your first album HT is a great example ,only without the repetition of the rhythm ( scream, rapping back to the scream and rapping !! ) ,well , Not was significantly same but that could give the clear concept like that !!

    NOTE : Yeah , It is kinda silly !! but what do you expect ? you’re just starting πŸ˜‰ . . let it flow dude !!

  28. YourConscience on September 9, 2009 at 8:48 am

    QUEEN… meets AC/DC… meets HARDCORE TECHNO… Mmmhmmm… Luv ya guys, but if your next album sounds like that, I may be forced to not support you. Haha. Glad to get an update though, and I hope you guys are having fun. =)

  29. HJP007 on September 9, 2009 at 7:49 am

    “hardcore techno” = AWESOME!!

  30. burningdaylight on September 9, 2009 at 6:46 am

    LMFAO!!!! that is one intense combo right there….now i want to hear it!!!! (although, seriously, why the hell techno? queen + ac/dc = classic rock. queen + ac/dc + techno = confusion**brain combusts)

  31. ghostly on September 9, 2009 at 6:40 am

    I loved this song so much as a kid and, being German, never understood why they were getting so much stick for it. Then I put it on my ipod some time ago… but I love it anyway xD

    Man, I’m so stoked for your guys’ new music.. ah! sounds so exciting! Thanks for the update. Art show was amazing! Idk how many times I can say it. I’d go see it again if I had gas money lol but at least I have your stuff in the GLXS book (even though in person is way awesome-er. Take care.


  53. Culda on September 8, 2009 at 10:28 pm

    Hope there’s gonna be some LP demos or something like that to see how that is gonna be maybe for 2010, “Gold Guns Girls Remix” is just awesome there’s nothing to say, we can also check it on YouTube, I actually find a way to download it but if Metric will release on iTunes I’ll buy it!
