Metallica has announced their new album, 72 Seasons, and a two-year world tour

Metallica has confirmed the title and release date of their upcoming twelfth studio album: “72 Seasons” will be available on April 14, 2023 via the band’s Blackened Recordings. Produced by Greg Fidelman with founding members James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track album is Metallica’s first full body of new material since 2016’s “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct.”

The band dropped the first single from the album, “Lux Æterna,” a three-and-a-half-minute blast that recalls the band’s early albums, which got a major revival with the prominent use of their 1986 classic Master of Puppets in the Stranger Things series earlier this year.

Speaking about the concept of the album’s title, James Hetfield said: “72 seasons. The first eighteen years of our lives that make up our true or false selves. The concept that our parents told us ‘who we are’. A possible conclusion about what kind of personality we are. I think the part “What’s most interesting about this is the ongoing study of those core beliefs and how they affect our perception of the world today. A lot of our adult experiences are re-enactments or reactions to those childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or liberation from that bondage we carry.” The full song list appears below.

The band has also announced a massive series of concerts for 2023 and 2024. Performed worldwide by Liquid Death and Blackened American Whiskey (in North America only) and promoted by Live Nation, Metallica’s M72 World Tour will see the band play two nights each City Visits – With each weekend without a repeat featuring two completely different rosters and support line-ups. The M72 Tour will feature a bold new stage design that moves the iconic Metallica Snake Pit to center stage, as well as the full I Disappear ticket for the tour and a discounted ticket debut for fans under the age of 16.

Tickets for both days will go on sale Friday, December 2nd. Single-day tickets will be available starting January 20th. For more information including fan club pre-sales, enhanced experiences and more, go to metallica.com/m72-info.

A portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold will go to the band’s All In My Hands Foundation. Founded in 2017, AWMH’s efforts to help and enrich the lives of members of the communities who have supported the band have raised nearly $13 million — providing $5.9 million in grants to career and technical education programs in the United States, more than $2.5 million to combat food insecurity, and more. of $3.2 million for worldwide disaster relief efforts.

Citi is the official card for the M72 Tour. Citi Cardmembers will be able to access pre-sale tickets in the United States starting Wednesday, November 30 at 2:00 pm local time through Thursday, December 1 at 10:00 pm local time through the Citi Entertainment Program.
