The Canadian alternative rock act Metric has just announced the dates of an upcoming U.S. tour that will also feature the Mexican rock band Zoé and fellow Canadian rockers July Talk. The tour supports the band's new album, Art of Doubt.

For the first time in three albums, guitarist Jimmy Shaw did not co-produce the album; Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Beck, Nine Inch Nails) handled those duties.

“Justin was just what we needed in a producer for this album,” says Shaw in a press release announcing the tour. “He really saw every band member eye to eye and was able to capture what we each do best.”

The U.S. tour kicks off on Feb. 11 at House of Blues. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at noon.
