Band release new album ‘Hardwired…To Self Destruct’ this week

Metallica appeared on US TV’s Tonight Show last night, performing their classic track ‘Enter Sandman’ on toy instruments.

The band performed their song ‘Moth Into Flame’ on the late-night show back in September, returning for this more comedic performance, which sees them team up with the show’s host and house band The Roots.

The heavy metal legends release their first new album in eight years, ‘Hardwired…To Self Destruct’, this Friday (November 18). They are scheduled to play an intimate show in London the following day.

‘Hardwired…To Self Destruct’ is Metallica’s first full album since ‘Death Magnetic’ in 2008. It was recorded with the band’s regular producer Greg Fidelman.

Metallica are also reportedly considering releasing another covers album. It would be the second covers album the band have released after 1998’s ‘Garage Inc.’

Meanwhile, the band’s guitarist Kirk Hammett has called Guns N’ Roses a “nostalgia act”.
