The new METZ video for Sugar Pill, from their acclaimed 2020 release, ‘Atlas Vending,’ is out now via Royal Mountain Records and Sub Pop. Shot in Thunder Bay, ON, the video is an homage to the unstoppable spirit of skateboarding and a testament to the inspiring drive to ride in any condition and any environment. Director Shayne Ehman says of the video: “Skateboarding feels great. We love to skate. The birds need to sing, we need to skate. I hope the winter skateboarding footage carries with it some of the love we have for skateboarding. I hope it contains a spirit of perseverance and the will to make it happen. Come wind, ice, or stormy weather, we shovel snow, we torch frost, we skate.”
