Metallica has announced a global listening party for its upcoming album, 72 Seasons. The entire album will be played at the April 13th event — one day before its street date.
According to the official announcement:
The metal titans have partnered with Trafalgar Releasing — which previously helmed the 2019 cinematic release of Metallica’s S&M2 concert — to premiere their 12th album and first since 2016’s Hardwired … To Self-Destruct. Each song on the album will feature a music video and commentary from the band.
Tickets for the event can be purchased via https://www.metallica.film/.
Frontman James Hetfield told us a while back that the loyalty that fans show for Metallica really goes both ways for them: “Y’know, when I see three generations out in the crowd, and they’re all three singing, like, ‘Master Of Puppets,’ it’s like, ‘Really? You guys really like this? Okay.’ I’ve got to believe them at some point (laughs). But it still blows my mind to go out there and, no matter what country you’re in, they are trying hard to sing along with it, and they just want to be a part of, man.”
