Metallica Announce Double Album, Release New Single ‘Hardwired’

Metallica might be about 75% all grey hairs now but by judging from the first track “Hardwired” off their new album titled Hardwired…To Self Destruct out Nov. 18th, age isn’t showing.  “Hardwired”  is about as heavy a new composition they’ve put out in years and carries a powerful resemblance to Master of Puppet’s “Battery.”

The follow-up to 2008’s Death Magnetic will launch on November 18 and will cover two CDs. The band have also made a video for the title track available, which can be watched below, and revealed the final tracklist and cover art.

The band say in a statement: “It really does exist! We know it’s been a long time coming, but today we proudly introduce you toHardwired…To Self-Destruct, the long-awaited next Metallica studio album that is the follow-up to Death Magnetic! Two discs, nearly 80 minutes of music is coming your way on November 18, 2016.
