Metal giants announce intimate signing session

Metallica will celebrate this year’s ‘Record Store Day’ with an intimate signing session on April 19.

The band will appear at Rasputin Music Store in Mountain View, California, to mark the day, which celebrates independent record stores.

Approximately 400 wristbands will be issued for the event – queuing can begin at 8am, and the store will open at 10am.

Speaking on their official website the band said: “Come on down to the store, say ‘Hi,’ bring some stuff for us to sign, and in the spirit of supporting your local independent record store maybe you’ll want to do a little shopping while you’re there.”

As previously announced on NME.COM Metallica are currently recording their ninth studio LP, due for release in September.
