Metallica Preparing New Live DVD/Blu-ray From 2009 Quebec City Shows

Metallica have plans to issue a new two-disc live DVD/Blu-ray release in early December. The effort captures two Quebec City, QC shows filmed by director Wayne Isham back in the fall of 2009.

The band had the following to say about that:

“Happy September… we’ve got an early Christmas present for you! As we get ready to head back into the studio, we thought we would round out the Death Magnetic experience with the DVD/Blu-Ray release of the two nights we filmed in Quebec City way back in the fall of 2009.

We were in the thick of the World Magnetic tour at that time and thought it would be cool to invite our friend Wayne Isham out to capture the shows, so while we were getting ready to film the 3D movie and all the other shenanigans we’ve been up to since then, Wayne and his team have been quietly editing and working with our team of next level audio engineers.

The resulting two disc set will be ready in early December of this year with all the details coming very soon. However, we need your help now!

As we mentioned before, we played two shows… we would like YOU to pick which setlist is the main feature with the remaining songs not played in the setlist that you choose appearing later on the disc in the “extras” section.

It’s simple – just vote for setlist one or setlist two before this Monday, September 24 at 9:00 AM PDT and which ever setlist gets the most votes will be our “main feature.”

Thanks in advance and as we love to say, keep watching here for all the info!”

Those interested in voting for which set becomes the “main feature” can do so over at Metallica.com.

Evanescence To Go On Hiatus

Evanescence are planning to go on hiatus later this year. Speaking to NME.com, vocalist Amy Lee stated:

“I’m thinking we’ll take a break first. I’m really not sure what I’ll do next. At the end of any really long tour you need to get your head in order. I think at the end of the run we’ll go on a break for a while and figure things out.”

She continued:

“…Taking long breaks is seen as a bad thing, but I don’t think it’s a bad thing. People have the idea that you have to keep putting stuff out while people remember you. But I’d rather make something that’s awesome and then make people remember again. I hope it doesn’t take five years, but I don’t want to put a timeline on it either.”

When asked how the other members of the band felt about the decision she replied:

“We’ll all be doing our own thing for a while. They’re very talented and they’ll all be fine.”

After initially jumping the gun, Rammstein‘s headlining show at the 2013 “Download Festival” in Donington Park, UK has been officially confirmed. The band will close out the June 16th stop of the annual festival.
