METALLICA made its "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" debut last night (Thursday, September 29), performing their new song "Moth Into Flame" for the first time on national television. While backstage at "The Tonight Show", James Hetfield, Robert Trujillo, Lars Ulrich and Kirk Hammett shared road stories about tour hygiene, a close call with Ozzy Osbourne and more. Check out a web-exclusive clip below.
"Moth Into Flame" is taken from METALLICA's tenth studio album, "Hardwired...To Self-Destruct", which is scheduled for a November 18 release via Blackened Recordings. The long-awaited follow-up to 2008's "Death Magnetic" consists of two discs, containing a dozen songs and nearly 80 minutes of music.
"Hardwired...To Self-Destruct" was produced by Greg Fidelman with frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich. The band recorded the disc at its own studio.
Instead of a previously announced bonus disc of demos, the deluxe edition of the album will now feature a number of cover songs that the band has recorded over the past few years, including a medley of Ronnie James Dio songs, IRON MAIDEN's "Remember Tomorrow" and DEEP PURPLE's "When A Blind Man Cries".
The deluxe version will also feature a live set recorded at Rasputin's in Berkeley, California on Record Store Day 2016 and a live version of the new song "Hardwired" recorded last month at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
METALLICA will next appear at Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit in Mountain View, California on October 22 and October 23.
