Metallica Hoping to Fully Commit Themselves to New Album in August
Lars Ulrich has been speaking with Daniel P. Carter of Radio 1's Rock Show (via Blabbermouth) about progress on the new Metallica album. As the drummer notes, while the writing is going well, the progress has been slower than the band would have liked due to other commitments:

"It's good. I wish we were writing more. But we always end up doing this, then we've gotta do this, then somebody says this, then we've gotta rehearse 'The Frayed Ends Of Sanity', and then we'll go play this thing for... We did a thing for Ozzy, kind of a tribute to Ozzy a week ago. And all these things always happen. And the word 'no' is not one that we're very good with. So people [say to us], 'Come and do this.' 'OK, we'll be there.' And then all of a sudden, it's, like, there goes all the writing for that week. But it's slogging along."

Ulrich revealed that the band is planning to start work on the album proper from mid-August, continuing to work on it until the end of the year:

"Right now there's nothing on the calendar at all from mid-August... we have a one-off in Montreal... but from mid-August for the rest of the year, there's nothing on the calendar, so hopefully we can get a good 60 hours in a week and just get in there and just hit it."
