Metallica Premiering New Song This Weekend
Metal giants Metallica have officially announced they'll be premiering a brand new single during a Bogota, Columbia show this weekend.

In a brief Facebook announcement, the band noted, "Working out the kinks in the new song that we'll be debuting in South America in a couple days." The message was accompanied by a photo of the rockers during a somewhat relaxed studio jam.

In a separate Twitter post, the band is shown practicing the new track during what seems like more of a tight rehearsal session. "Jammin' on a new tune at HQ and getting it ready to go to South America in a couple days," the note reads.

As far as the new album goes, the latest update came from guitarist Kirk Hammett as he stressed the need for the band to urgently get into full writing mode. "We cannot think of any other reasons to procrastinate; of any other things to put on the calendar to push back [the start] date [for the new album writing sessions]," he told Kerrang magazine.

"We're kind of backed up into the corner now, so yes, we have to start working on the album. And I'm excited. James [Hetfield] has, like, 800 riffs. I only have 400, but there's not going to be any shortage of ideas," Kirk added. "It's going to be interesting to see how it turns out."

After wrapping up the upcoming dates in South America, Metallica will hit Europe in late May for a two-month trek. The band's only North American performance this year will take place during Heavy Montreal 2014 festival in August in Montreal, Canada.
