We’re playing catch up with the big boys of the big four! Metallica recently dropped a brand new single, Screaming Suicide, and have more news concerning the release of their upcoming new album 72 Seasons.
Their new single, Screaming Suicide, as one might gather from the title, covers a very serious subject, one the band thinks still does not get enough attention.
Screaming Suicide addresses the taboo word of suicide. The intention is to communicate about the darkness we feel inside. It’s ridiculous to think we should deny that we have these thoughts. At one point or another I believe most people have thought about it. To face it is to speak the unspoken. If it’s a human experience, we should be able to talk about it. You are not alone.Metallica frontman James Hetfield on their new single Screaming Suicide

Screaming Suicide follows on from 72 Seasons first single, the highly enjoyable sprint that is Lux Æterna. 72 Seasons will be released on Metallica’s own label Blackened Recordings on April 14th 2023.
To celebrate the release of 72 Seasons, Metallica will host a global theatre and cinema event on the day before the album’s release, April 13th. Across cinemas worldwide, Metallica fans will get to experience the new album in full. This includes music videos for every song along with other exclusive content from the band. Tickets for this one night only event will be available from Metallica.film on the 2nd of March.
Metallica will return to the UK this Summer as double night headliners for the 20th anniversary of the Download Festival. They will headline the Thursday and Saturday nights of the event, alongside Bring Me The Horizon (Friday) and Slipknot (Sunday).
