Metallica have made a snippet of their new track Atlas, Rise! available to stream.
It’s taken from the thrash giants’ upcoming 10th album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, which is released on November 18. The clip of Atlas, Rise! is streaming now on Metallica’s website and it will be available to hear in full on Halloween, with a countdown running online.
A limited-edition seasonal mask goes on sale on today (October 28), which comes with an access code offering the chance to hear the song 30 minutes before its official release.
The band said: “No surprises this time around! We’re giving you some heads up that we plan to unleash the next track from Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, Atlas, Rise!, to you streaming online and via your favourite radio station this Halloween, October 31, at noon PDT.
“We’re less than a month away now. Looking forward to celebrating Halloween with you as we take the next step toward the release of all 12 songs.”
Metallica previously released Hardwired and Moth Into Flame from the follow-up to 2008’s Death Magnetic.
