Metallica Announce First Ever Kuala Lumpur Show
2013 is already shaping up to be a year of firsts for Metallica. The band played the "Kill 'Em All" album live for the first time in 30 years at Orion last month, are releasing their first ever IMAX concert movie in September, and have scheduled their debut performance in China for August.

Now, in a statement on their official website, the band has announced that they will be playing in Malaysia for the first time on August 21st:

"We've said it before ... with more than 30 years of traveling around the world behind us, there are very few places that we have yet to explore. So it's rather thrilling for us to be back with yet another first, a stop in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on August 21 at Stadium Merdeka."

The statement also promises that Metallica will be announcing one more show for August of this year in an as yet undisclosed city.

The most recent Metallica news reports that the band has 600 song ideas for the next album, which is reportedly going to be released in 2015. The band bassist Rob Trujillo revealed that the upcoming record will be an extension of 2008's "Death Magnetic." Rumors say that the upcoming album will be produced by Rick Rubin.
