Metallica have announced plans to release a new live EP featuring tracks recorded during gigs in Australia.

The band are releasing 'Six Feet Down Under' from their official website,, from September 20 to mark the end of their 'World Magnetic' tour.

The eight-track EP, which has been put together by the band with the help of fan recordings, features cuts from performances stretching from 1989 up to 2004.

Writing on their website the band explained: "You guys, the fans, came to our rescue with some pretty decent bootleg options and we trimmed those down to two songs from each tour in 1989, 1993, 1998 and 2004. In digging a little deeper, it occurred to us that we had tracks that had never before been released as 'live b-sides' and that added to the adventure of pulling it all together."

The tracklisting for 'Six Feet Down Under' is:

'Eye Of The Beholder' - Recorded live on May 4, 1989 at Festival Hall in Melbourne
'...And Justice For All' - Recorded live on May 4, 1989 at Festival Hall in Melbourne
'Through The Never' - Recorded live on April 8, 1993 at the Entertainment Centre in Perth
'The Unforgiven' - Recorded live on April 4, 1993 at the National Tennis Centre in Melbourne
'Low Man's Lyric (Acoustic)' - Recorded live on April 11, 1998 at the Entertainment Centre in Perth
'Devil's Dance' - Recorded live on April 12, 1998 at the Entertainment Centre in Perth
'Frantic' - Recorded live on January 21, 2004 at the Entertainment Centre in Sydney
'Fight Fire With Fire' - Recorded live on January 19, 2004 at the Entertainment Centre in Brisbane
