Metallica Announce New Single, Album and Tour!
It has been six years since Metallica released their last album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct and today they reveal the follow up is coming early next year!
Album number 12, titled '72 Seasons' will arrive on April 14, 2023.
James Hetfield explains of that title:
“72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves. The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is re-enactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”
Watch the video for lead single 'Lux Æterna' below:
