Fresh off the recent debut of their first track off the incoming “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct” album, Metallica have released their follow-up track entitled “Moth Into Flame” this morning. It’s full of great riffs, unforced arrangement, and early Iron Maiden inspired melodies and it’s fire!
The band writes:
We’re back!! Welcome to track number two from Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, “Moth Into Flame.” As some of you accurately predicted, we gave it the first public spin while hanging out with our great friend Howard Stern this morning in his New York studio. Sitting and chatting with Howard is one our favorite things to do and we were honored that he offered to play it first and let us perform a few additional songs live while we were there. We’re also excited to debut the corresponding video directed by Tom Kirk of Muse fame.
Just to refresh your memories, ‘Hardwired…To Self-Destruct’ hits the streets on November 18, 2016 and was produced by Greg Fidelman, along with James and Lars, and is available for pre-order in a variety of configurations including 12 songs on a double CD, vinyl, digital download, as well as a deluxe version including cover songs and live tracks. We are just getting started, so keep watching this space for more information, more tour dates and just in general, more Metallica!! IT’S ON!
Hardwired…To Self-Destruct is set to release worldwide November 18th to be followed by a full US Tour.
