METALLICA was formed in 1981 in Los Angeles, California, but have been based in San Francisco for most of their career and are legends of heavy metal.
This is the lead single from the band’s upcoming 12th studio album: “72 SEASONS,” which is due out on April 14th.
Of the new album, vocalist James Hetfield says:
“72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves. The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”
