Metric lead singer Emily Haines has announced a North American tour with her band, the Soft Skeleton.
The tour kicks off in Montreal January 4th at the Theatre Outremont. In addition to 10 major American cities, Haines will be performing in Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.
But don't expect to find Metric's guitar and drum heavy sound, because Haines' solo material is made up of much softer vocals and piano.
As she describes it, "It's music to dream to."
If you'd like to check out her solo material, you should
