Metallica Reveals Info on Upcoming Album and Tour


Metallica Metallica used yesterdays headlining appearance at the Weenie Roast festival in California (May 18th) to unveil details about their new album.

Appearing at the event alongside the Offspring, the group waited until the end of their 15-song set to tell fans that the bands long-awaited studio album would be out in September.

Drummer Lars Ulrich added that the group would embark on a tour in support of the record in October.

The band didn't preview any new songs during their near-two hour long set at the sold-out Verizon Amphitheatre, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

But they did showcase some of their greatest hits, including 'Creeping Death' and 'For Whom The Bell Tolls'.

The anticipation for the band's follow-up to 2003's 'St Anger' has continued to grow over recent weeks with the launch of new websites.
