METALLICA Unveils New Track “Hardwired”; New Album ‘Hardwired…To Self-Destruct’ Due Out This November!

Metallica band

It’s hard to believe that it’s been eight years since the release of Metallica’s last album, Death Magnetic. The rumors have been flying around fast and furious about whether or not Metallica is in the studio or has been in the studio, but now we know for sure. Their next effort will be titled,Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, which will be due out on November 18th via their own label, Blackened Recordings. I have pretty much given up on the band since their last several album’s have been shit but this new track sounds half-way decent. Read on below to hear the first track, “Hardwired” released as a live video. We also have the album cover art, track listing, and more details.
