Thrash metal’s reigning kings Metallica have announced an April 14th release date for their 12th studio album, “72 Seasons“. That 12-song outing was once again produced by Greg Fidelman (Slipknot/Slayer) alongside the band’s vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich.

A first single, “Lux Æterna“, has been launched in advance, complete with a music video directed by Tim Saccenti. Speaking on the record itself, Hetfield offered:

“72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves. The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”

72 Seasons” track listing:

01 – “72 Seasons

03 – “Screaming Suicide

Pre-orders for the record have been made available online here. As is often the case, a new album means a round of touring and the band will kickoff that run this April. The ‘M72 World Tour‘ will feature back two shows in each city, performing a different set on each pair of shows with different opening acts on each night on a city basis. The group will also be playing in the round on that trek, offering up a 360 degree view of the show.

Enhanced tickets are available now via this location, while Metallica fan club pre-sales will commence this Wednesday, November 30th. You can find more details regarding that here. Two-day discounted ticket packages will available to the general public this Friday, December 02nd , while single-day tickets will launch on January 20th, 2023. A portion of the proceeds from all tickets sold will be donated to Metallica‘s All Within My Hands Foundation.

The trek itself will feature a diverse roster of opening artists, including the likes of the returning Texan groove metal kings Pantera, modern metal chart-toppers Five Finger Death Punch and British melodic metalcore outfit Architects, among others.
