Are you stoked for a new Metallica record? Are you stoked to maybe hear it sometime this year? Well then I have some exceptionally shitty news for you! You're basically never getting a new Metallica album because of reasons I can't even explain to you! That's right. According to commando drummer Lars Ulrich in a recent interview, fans shouldn't hold their breath regarding a new Metallica album.
"Compared to the age of the earth and the age of man populating this wonderful planet, it is very close by. I wouldn't hold my breath or skip going to the bathroom, but it's coming."
So Kirk Hammett loses his phone and now all of sudden things are changing about the status of the new record, I guess? Who knows. We'll hear it when we hear it. At this point I'm indifferent to the whole thing. if we get it by 2018, great! Maybe I'll have a few new tunes to blast in my car. If not, I've heard there are plenty of other bands for me to throw my money at.
