Metallica Expect To Make Progress With New Album This Fall


Metallica will likely back to work full-time on their new album in September. Band guitarist Kirk Hammett recently told

“We totally want to make an album. But we have all these other touring commitments, and we have families now. It’s gonna be summertime soon, and it’s hard to work because the kids are out of school. But we have a backlog of riffs in the riff bank.

Now it’s about picking riffs out, putting them together and moving along. Later, we’ll revisit it all and see where it goes. We’ve all said to each other that September is gonna be the time when we buckle down. I know I told everyone it was gonna be last January…but that’s just the way it goes! [laughs]”
