Next Metallica's album soon
Lars Ulrich won't quite promise - but he believes Metallica will release their 11th album before 2024.
There's an eight-year gap between ninth title Death Magnetic, which arrived in 2008, and its follow-up Hardwired... To Self-Destruct, which arrives on Friday (November 18).
Ulrich tells Apple Music: "Everybody's like, 'Eight years what have you been doing?' It's like, 'Excuse me? We've been busier than we ever have in our lives.
We spent three years touring Death Magnetic, we put two incredibly hard years into the Through The Never movie project. We did the dance with Lou Reed and we've played every festival on this planet multiple times. We've been to continents that are primarily inhabited by penguins.
