“We’re excited to add to the ever expanding sports action nights by announcing that we will be getting together with our good friends the San Jose Sharks on January 21, 2015 as they take on their rivals the LA Kings for a night of Metalli-hockey mayhem… what’s that we hear you say? “ANOTHER Bay Area Metallica-sports tie-in?” Well, as some of you may know, we have been long supporters of the Sharks going back to the mid-90’s when the team moved permanently to San Jose… over the years we’ve made many treks down to the Shark Tank. So it’s actually pretty fitting that we finally connect with the team for a night of metal and hockey and we want you to come along and partake of the festivities with us. We’ll be on hand for the first strains of “Seek & Destroy,” kick off the game with the puck drop, and partake in some of the intermission fun and games that Sharks fans know and love.

So come be a part of the NHL action with us and treat yourselves to some pretty cool ice hockey in the process. Special Metallica Night tickets go on sale this Wednesday, December 17th at 10:00 AM PST and include a Metalli-Sharks shirt with a portion of the sales benefiting the San Francisco Bay Chapter of the Sierra Club. Be sure to purchase the special event ticket here at in order to also receive the shirt.

Atreyu drummer/vocalist Brandon Saller discussed what fans can expect from the bands forthcoming sixth studio album, which they have just officially begun pre-production for. Saller told

“For us, there was never a situation of too many cooks in the kitchen when we moved to the major label. We have always been a band that experimented with new sounds and new styles, trying to expand on what we have already done. What Alex is saying with that no major label bullshit is the new music we’ve been toying with is unapologetically abrasive.

There’s nothing very radio about it. There’s nothing pop about it. We’re trying to get back to where we were when we first started the band, all we wanted to do was fucken destroy a 300 person capacity club. We just want to go back to fast and heavy. We’ve written and recorded a few songs, and it’s coming up awesome, but we are trying to keep our mouths shut on this. I’ll say this much, it’s very heavy, and a punch in the face for heavy metal fans.”
