Metallica’s Hardwired… To Self-Destruct Album Certified Platinum In The United States

Metallica‘s Hardwired… To Self-Destruct was released back in November via Blackened Recordings, and after selling 291,000 equivalent album units in its first week, the new record became their sixth to land at #1 on The Billboard Top 200. Earlier this week Hardwired… To Self-Destruct reached another milestone, as it was certified platinum by the RIAA (Recording Association Of America) for 1,000,000 units sold. The continued sales of the record are due to their recent shows, plus their brilliant ticket/album bundle promotion for their upcoming North American tour. If you got a ticket, you got an album, and with shows selling out as fast as they have been, it’s no shocker that Hardwired… To Self-Destruct has sold over a million copies. Now bring on the tour!
