Metallica’s On A Roll…

They’ve been very busy this year and fans have long been waiting for them to drop their new album and go back on the road. Well, dare I say ‘FINALLY!’ With their latest studio album since 2008 “Hardwired … to Self-Destruct” to be released on November 18 in a two-disc set, the band also announced their upcoming tours. They posted this on their official website:

It’s on!!! As we put the finishing touches on Hardwired…To Self-Destruct we’re also getting ready to hit the road for the first of many headlining shows around the world. To kick it all off we’re returning to five cities we know will absolutely rock hard with all kinds of crazy Metalli-love and get this tour started right! First up we travel to Latin America with stops in Puerto Rico, Ecuador, Colombia, Guatemala and Costa Rica. All the dates and ticket information, including presales for the Fifth Members, is below. We can’t think of a better place to get the juices flowing and set the table for many more shows to come!

We are beyond excited to get out there, visit all of you and test out some of the new songs live. Keep watching here for many more announcements in the coming weeks!!

If your city isn’t on the list, don’t fret. Lars Ulrich already said:

“We’re going to start pretty much full-on touring in January and are looking to figure out what we’re doing in North America, but there will definitely be some pretty extensive touring in America.”

Okay, we’re way too excited right now!
