“We’ve started writing songs and preparing for the next record, so that’s very exciting,” he tells TN. “We’re down here among all of you beautiful people and playing [the] ‘By Request’ [setlist] and going to new places. We were in Quito two days ago, where we’d never been [before].
“We’re playing a new song on stage, which people seem to be very receptive to. We’re writing away. Hopefully, we will be done writing this year and next year we should record and hopefully have a new record out maybe next year. We’ll see. Hopefully next year.”
Metallica are currently touring their first ever fan-curated setlist, which will come to Sonisphere in July! We’re excited. You should be too.
