72 Seasons marks Metallica’s first studio album since 2016’s Hardwired…to Self-Destruct. Since announcing the record in November 2022, they’ve released four tracks: “Lux Æterna,” “Screaming Suicide,” “If Darkness Had a Son” and “72 Seasons.”
Metallica have also shared many “behind the scenes” looks of the songs’ accompanying music videos, the vinyl-making process and what fans can expect from the album’s packaging.
Following the release of 72 Seasons, Metallica hit the road for their global, two-year M72 tour. Their first shows are set for April 27 and April 29 at the Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam; you can buy tickets for the tour here and find their full schedule at this location.
