Metallica commented on the track:
We’re back!! Welcome to track number two from Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, “Moth Into Flame.” As some of you accurately predicted, we gave it the first public spin while hanging out with our great friend Howard Stern this morning in his New York studio. Sitting and chatting with Howard is one our favorite things to do and we were honored that he offered to play it first and let us perform a few additional songs live while we were there. We’re also excited to debut the corresponding video directed by Tom Kirk of Muse fame.
Just to refresh your memories, ‘Hardwired…To Self-Destruct’ hits the streets on November 18, 2016 and was produced by Greg Fidelman, along with James and Lars, and is available for pre-order in a variety of configurations including 12 songs on a double CD, vinyl, digital download, as well as a deluxe version including cover songs and live tracks.
We are just getting started, so keep watching this space for more information, more tour dates and just in general, more Metallica!! IT’S ON!
The decidedly old-school thrash/heavy metal song has the vibe of Kill Em All, with the all the melodies of Death Magnetic, and sounds killer! The band played the Global Citizen festival at Central Park in New York City this past weekend, and has announced a special show Tuesday night in New York at Webster Hall. The intimate club show is open only to members of Metallica’s online fan club and will benefit City Harvest. Unfortunately, it is already sold out, but if you have the cash, you can find tickets online!
