Metallica have asked fans to share pictures of them wearing the band’s spooky Hardwired… To Self-Destruct Halloween masks.

The limited edition masks are available now from select independent record stores, each coming with a code that allows fans to hear new track Atlas, Rise! 30 minutes before anyone else when it launches at 3pm EST on October 31.

Metallica say: “Heading out to your local record store to get your hands on a Hardwired mask? Make sure to post a photo of you wearing it with the clever hashtag #MetallicaMask. We’ll repost some of our favourites.”

See several shots of the mask below.

This week, Metallica released a short clip of Atlas, Rise! on their website. It’s the third track lifted from their upcoming 10th studio album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct – which will launch on November 18 on 2CDs along with a deluxe edition featuring a third disc.

Metallica previously released Hardwired and Moth Into Flame from the follow-up to 2008’s Death Magnetic.

Metallica are on tour, with dates lined up through into 2017.
