METALLICA: More South African Video Footage Posted Online
METALLICA have posted a second video clip from their recent trip to South Africa, where they headlined the country's biggest international music festival ever. The Coca-Cola Colab Massive Mix festival took place on March 18 in the city of Centurion, March 21 in Durban and March 25 in Cape Town. The new 14-minute clip contains footage the band's guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo talking about surfing, and the group warming up backstage with a rendition of "St. Anger", followed by a performance of the track "For Whom the Bell Tolls" from their March 21 concert at the Absa Stadium in Durban. Check it out in the Windows Media format: 300K, 100K, 56K.
METALLICA are currently writing music for their ninth studio album, which they plan to record this summer with producer Rick Rubin. A late 2006 or early 2007 release is likely. The group will play some European and Japanese gigs this summer. No U.S. shows are planned.
