Lars Ulrich has released a video of himself as he opens a package containing copies of upcoming Metallica album Hardwired… To Self Destruct.
He gets excited as he tears open the envelope on his return from the band’s tour of Latin America – their last run of dates before their 10th record is released on November 18.
In the video below, Ulrich yells: “It lives!” as he throws copies of the standard and deluxe editions into the air.
He says: “This is kind of exciting. Jaws music playing, Star Wars music playing – something super-cool. A CD! Another one! It’s raining CDs!”
Metallica thanked Latin American fans in a video shot on their plane home over the weekend. Their next live engagement is at London’s House Of Vans on November 18, with further dates confirmed from January to April, and more to follow.
The band are the cover stars of the latest edition of Metal Hammer, on sale November 8 (tomorrow).
