Guitarist James Shaw said: "Synthetica is the sonic culmination of everything we have done. We've always had a sound in our heads that we hoped to realise. We finally heard it coming out of the speakers this time. It's futuristic and synthesized, yet also organic."

The full track list for Synthetica is as follows:

'Artificial Nocturne'
'Youth Without Youth'
'Speed The Collapse'
'Breathing Underwater'
'Dreams So Real'
'Lost Kitten'
'The Void'
'Synthetica'
'Clone'
'The Wanderlust'
'Nothing But Time'

Metric will begin a short UK tour in July, playing three dates at London's Shepherds Bush Empire (July 2), Manchester's HMV Ritz (July 7) and Oxford's O2 Academy (July 8).

Metric vocalist Emily Haines was nominated in the 'Hottest Woman' category at the 2011 NME Awards.

The band have featured on several movie soundtracks including The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.

The first single from Synthetica 'Youth Without Youth' will be released on May 18, with the full album due out on June 18.
