Metallica launch second Now That We’re Dead video

Metallica meet Metallica

Metallica have released a second video for their track Now That We’re Dead, using material shot during their current world tour. Watch it below.

The band originally released a promo to accompany every track on tenth album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct when it arrived in November last year. They also served up a 10-minute clip focusing on the recording of Now That We’re Dead.

The album was certified platinum in the US in April, after notching up more than a million equivalent album units – a calculation that takes in physical sales, digital track sales and online streaming of audio and video.

Since Metallica run their own label, Blackened Records, they spoofed an image of themselves as label execs, presenting themselves as musicians with platinum discs.

Last week, frontman James Hetfield reflected on the death of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell by discussing his own struggled with depression, saying: “I obviously can’t explain what he was going through, but we all have our darknesses. Check in with each other – let each other know how you’re doing.”

Metallica’s WorldWired tour continues in North America right now, with dates booked until May next year, and a run of pop-up shop appearances accompanying some shows. Full dates below.
