Cascades" was released as the second of the album on 2 June 2015.

It’s called Pagans in Vegas, and it’s scheduled for release on Sept. It’s the first of two new albums for Metric on the horizon, with the next one slated for release in 2016.
Haines sounds more invested vocally in these tracks, the band's expanded use of synths and restraint within the mix makes the music more interesting, and it truly seems like this is the direction the band want to go in the future.
Pagans in Vegas will be the first of two albums from Metric, with the second album expected in 2016. Check out the track list for the first album as well as the band's new tour dates, below

Given how much Pagans In Vegas sounds like a transitional album, it'll be intriguing to hear where that one takes them. Fantasies and Synthetica were a slow descent downwards, but it's Pagans In Vegas and its 12 tracks of tired melodies that sees Metric part with what gave them edge in the beginning: sharp lyrics, double-time guitar riffs, and a pen that writes without an awareness of the media.

Pagans In Vegas is the sixth Metric album, out September 18 2015. About the album’s recording and writing, Emily Haines said: Last year at this time, we were staggering home from our last leg of touring Synthetica, and we were beyond ready for a hard won year off. ‘This time, it will be a REAL year off!,’ we proclaimed, swearing we would not go straight into making another album as soon as we had unpacked our bags. And yet, here I am, writing this letter to you from the studio, fully immersed in fresh music and somewhat amazed that we’ve managed to keep on loving what we do for this long.
