Metallica to Hit the Studio in 2014: 'We'll Run Out of Excuses for Not Doing It by Then'
As metal titans Metallica took the stage at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego last Friday (July 19), the band revealed an entire set of new information, also including details about what fans seem to be interested in the most - the new album. When asked about the new record, drummer Lars Ulrich specifically stated that "Death Magnetic" follow-up is what the four-piece will be focusing on the most during 2014, even revealing somewhat of a tentative 2015 release date. "We'll have run out of excuses for not doing it by then," Ulrich said (via Entertainment Weekly). "2014 will be all about making a new Metallica record." According to the Billboard report, the new album could drop during 2015. In drummer's own words, the band's "had a couple of jams at HQ. [Next year] we'll be all about a new Metallica record. In about another year and a half you'll probably see one." Apart from charging through a classic 13-song setlist at the intimate Spreckels Theatre concert, Metallica also unveiled several new details regarding their upcoming "Through the Never" 3D movie, including a film poster and an official theatrical trailer. You can check both out below. The intense clip depicts Dane DeHaan's character getting instructions to acquire an unknown item for the group when all hell breaks loose out on the street, leaving fans so far baffled, yet impressed. The movie is set to hit the IMAX theaters on September 27 and then roll out to regular cinemas a week later, on October 4. More details at the official website. Metallica's 2013 Comic-Con gig setlist: 01. Creeping Death 02. For Whom the Bell Tolls 03. Fuel 04. Ride the Lightning 05. Welcome Home (Sanitarium) 06. Sad But True 07. One 08. Master of Puppets 09. Blackened 10. Nothing Else Matters 11. Enter Sandman Encore 12. Last Caress 13. Seek & Destroy
