Metallica returns with a new album, after a good few years of silence.
The veteran American rock giant officially announced yesterday (Monday) 72 Reasons, her 11th studio album, which will be released on April 14, 2023.
This is a seven-year hiatus since Metallica's previous studio album, Hardwired... to Self-Destruct, came out in 2016 (although the band hasn't maintained complete wireless silence since then, releasing live albums in between).
At the same time as the exciting announcement of the album, Metallica revealed the first single from the new project - the thrash metal song "Lux Æterna", which corresponds with the early music of the group.
It was also announced that 72 Reasons, produced among others by vocalist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich, will contain 12 tracks.
The album will be backed by an extensive world tour that will continue deep into 2024, and among the warm-up bands you can find Pantera, Nine Inch Nails and others.
The uniqueness of this tour is that the band will appear in each city twice, and will perform a different set of songs on each of the evenings and host other warm-up artists.
As you may remember, Metallica came back to consciousness last summer and gained many young fans from an unexpected direction, after "Master of Puppets", their classic song from 1986, was given a place of honor in an episode of the fourth season of the series "Stranger Things" from Netflix.
As a result of the tremendous exposure, the song conquered the top of the iTunes rock chart, and even managed to enter the top 100 chart of the American Billboard for the first time.
