Metallica will release their eleventh studio album, Hardwired … To Self-Destruct, on November 18th.
This will be their first studio album since 2008’s multi-platinum 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 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 is the first track to be released from the forthcoming album.
