Metallica will release their eleventh studio album, Hardwired…
To Self-Destruct, on November 18th, via Blackened Recordings. The 2 CD set is the Grammy® Award winningRock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee’s first studio albumsince 2008’s multi-platinum Death Magnetic. Hardwired…To Self-Destruct is produced by Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed Death Magnetic.
“Has it really been eight years? Doesn’t feel like it! Nudge, nudge, wink, wink,” said Metallica’ s Lars Ulrich.
“We’re obviously beyond psyched to share new tunes with all our friends out there. We’ve been rockin’ along in the studio with Greg on and off for the last 18 months firing up the creative engines again. Putting new music out there, getting in your faces once again and all that comes with it is what we love to do more than anything else, so strap yourselves in … INCOMING!”
“Hardwired,” the first track to be released from the forthcoming album was played for the first time on August 18 during a live remote broadcast from Metallica’s HQ in the Bay Area, and then they also premiered the official video for “Hardwired.” During an interview with Minneapolis rockstation 93X discussing the band’s performance at U.S. Bank Stadium on August 20th, Lars Ulrich stunned 93X’s Pablo by unleashing the incendiary song for the first time, much to the surprise (and delight) of the station, as well as fans around the world.
Metallica will begin their world tour in 2017.
