Metallica announces their new album “72 Seasons” releasing on April 14th, 2023 via their own Blackened Recordings. The band also released the first offering from the album “Lux Æterna”! At just 3:25, we get a blast of Metallica’s 40 years of history in an iconic blast from the past that’s sure to conjure of feelings of nostalgia as the band brings back the straight up thrash sound that they are so well known for. Hetfield’s vocals only seem to get stronger, and this track is proof of that. Ulrich, Hammett and Trujillo absolutely bring the fire to this short but instant hit. Check out the video here!


The complete track list for the upcoming album is:

72 Seasons
Shadows Follow
Screaming Suicide
Sleepwalk My Life Away
You Must Burn!
Lux Æterna
Crown of Barbed Wire
Chasing Light
If Darkness Had a Son
Too Far Gone?

The band also announced their tour schedule for all of 2023 and 2024. Presented by Liquid Death globally and American Whiskey in North America, this tour will be promoted by Live Nation. For more info, please see the following from the band’s press release.

Today also marks the announcement of every Metallica show booked through 2023 and 2024: Presented worldwide by Liquid Death and Blackened American Whiskey (in North America only) and promoted by Live Nation, Metallica’s M72 world tour will see the band playing two nights in every city it visits—with each No Repeat Weekend featuring two completely different setlists and support lineups. The M72 tour will feature a bold new in-the-round stage design that relocates the famed Metallica Snake Pit to center stage, as well as the I Disappear full-tour pass and the debut of discounted tickets for fans under 16 years of age. Two-day tickets will be on sale Friday, December 2nd at ticketmaster.com and will include the option of pre-ordering 72 Seasons vinyl and/or CD. Single day tickets will be available beginning January 20th. For further information including fan club presales, enhanced experiences and more, go to metallica.com/m72-info. A portion of proceeds from every ticket sold will go to the band’s All Within My Hands foundation. Founded in 2017, AWMH’s efforts to assist and enrich the lives of members of the communities who have supported the band have raised nearly $13 million – providing $5.9 million in grants to career and technical education programs in the US, over $2.5 million to combat food insecurity, and more than $3.2 million to disaster relief efforts worldwide.
