Metallica: 'We'll Always Be Creative, That's How We Are As Individuals'
Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett recently discussed an interesting possibility of the band turning into a recording-only or touring-only act, dubbing it highly unlikely.

Chatting with El Comercio, Kirk was asked on whether Metallica will ever reach the point of doing tours only and no longer making new music. "I hope not," he replied (via Blabbermouth). "There's a lot of different aspects to this band that we need to tend to.

"But I really think that the touring part supports the recording part, and the recording part - the creativity, the songs - supports the touring part," the guitarist continued. "Both of those things kind of support each other and need each other for us to move forward. So I think that we would always need to write music, write songs, record them."

Further discussing future scenarios, Hammett added, "It might be the exact opposite - we might just end up recording songs for the rest of our career at one point. Or we might end up just touring. But I, myself, doubt that any of those two things will happen.

"I'm pretty confident that we will always be creative, because that's how we are as individuals," he concluded. "I mean, that's how I am - I get bored, pick up my guitar, and next thing you know, I have a f--king riff. I get excited and I show it to the other guys, and next thing you know, we're jamming on it. It's a part of what we do."

Metallica recently wrapped up their "By Request" South American tour where they exclusively premiered new song "The Lords of Summer." The band will hit Europe this summer and continue working on the new album, tentatively due in 2015.
