METALLICA: Video Recap Of Los Angeles Promotional Tour
January 4, 2017
A seven-minute video recap of METALLICA's promotional tour in Southern California can be seen below. The clip was filmed between December 12 and December 16, 2016 as the band crisscrossed Los Angeles, appearing on radio, a few podcasts and playing gigs on both "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and at The Fonda Theatre.
METALLICA's latest studio album, "Hardwired… To Self-Destruct", debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 album chart, selling 291,000 copies in its first week of release.
METALLICA frontman James Hetfield recently said that the reaction to "Hardwired… To Self-Destruct" has been so positive, it has inspired him and his bandmates to release the next record sooner.
Speaking to Italy's Linea Rock about METALLICA's plans for the foreseeable future, Hetfield said: "I think we plan… At least for now, we've booked out two years [of touring]… at least. So I can't predict the future, but we start there and hopefully there's more than that. And I would like to make some new music sooner than eight years, for sure. [You get] such a pleasure and a joy of hearing your new music and having other people hear it. So we don't wanna wait that long."
"Hardwired… To Self-Destruct" consists of two discs, containing a dozen songs and nearly 80 minutes of music.
