Metallica album to be released in October?

Retailer appears to have leaked date of band's return

Metallica‘s next album has been given a release date of October 28 by Amazon.com.

Although the band have no confirmed a schedule for the new record, the online retailer is listing it already.

The release date would follow the band’s headlining appearances at the Reading And Leeds Festivals in August so has some plausibility.

The album, the follow-up to 2003’s ‘St Anger’, will be Metallica‘s ninth studio release.
