Metallica have announced that they will release their eleventh studio album, ‘Hardwired… To Self-Destruct’, on 18 Nov. The follow-up to 2008’s ‘Death Magnetic’, the LP is produced by Greg Fidelman and will be released through the band’s own Blackened Records label.

“Has it really been eight years? Doesn’t feel like it! Nudge, nudge, wink, wink”, says Lars Ulrich. “We’re obviously beyond psyched to share new tunes with all our friends out there. We’ve been rockin’ along in the studio with Greg on and off for the last eighteen months firing up the creative engines again. Putting new music out there, getting in your faces once again and all that comes with it is what we love to do more than anything else, so strap yourselves in… INCOMING!”

The announcement of the album was accompanied by the video for first single ‘Hardwired’, which you can watch here:
