Metallica has been working through their discography and reissuing each album with tons of bonus content. According to an email sent out to their fan club and obtained by Blabbermouth, the band has begun seeking material for the Load and Reload reissues. The band asked fans for "anything and everything you might have from August 1995 through September 1998" for the upcoming box set editions of the records.
"We're working our way through the catalog to bring you the comprehensive Deluxe Box Sets we've come to love. And now it's time to get started on Load and Reload!
"As you may remember, we asked you for help in putting together the first five box sets and, to make sure there's a fan footprint on all of these releases, we'll be doing that again!
"We're looking for anything and everything you might have from August 1995 through September 1998: live photos (taken by you!) or snaps from a meet & greet, flyers, ticket stubs, backstage passes, and whatever other mementos you may have from that time.
"Make your mark on these albums by emailing us at email@example.com to share your story and receive more info about submitting these little pieces of history. Nothing is too small or trivial; share your archives with your fellow fans and have some fun walking down memory lane with us!"
It seems Metallica already got a head start on prepping fans for the reissue, considering they played "Fixxxer" from Reload for the first time ever live recently.
