Metallica Announce New Album ’72 Seasons’ + World Tour

Metallica are here to make your Monday absolutely great! The mighty band have announced their upcoming album, released the debut single in the process and to top of it all off, announced a tour with quite the unique layout.

Let’s start at the beginning, shall we. Metallica will be releasing their brand new album 72 Seasons on the 14th of April of 2023.
In the release surrounding the new album, frontman James Hetfield shared the following about the upcoming music:

“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.”

The album will have 12 songs, and the tracklisting looks like this:

01. 72 Seasons
02. Shadows Follow
03. Screaming Suicide
04. Sleepwalk My Life Away
05. You Must Burn!
06. Lux Æterna
07. Crown of Barbed Wire
08. Chasing Light
09. If Darkness Had a Son
10. Too Far Gone?
11. Room of Mirrors
12. Inamorata

In addition, the band have already released the first single Lux Æterna, which can be streamed right below. If you’re interested to learn more about the band’s upcoming tour, keep scrolling!

Last but not least, Metallica will embark on a very unique tour. They will be playing two shows in many cities around the world, including Amsterdam, Madrid, Montreal and Seattle.

The support acts throughout the tour that will start in April and will last until early September include Architects, Five Finger Death Punch, Ice Nine Kills, Volbeat & more.
