Metallica Kory Grow of Rolling Stone reports:

“We promised our fans we’d play a new song and we’ve been writing and creating away and we’re going to throw something at them on Sunday,” Metallica’s Lars Ulrich told Rolling Stone last week. “We have something lined up that is fairly representative of where our creative headspace is at right now. It’s one of those things that’s like, ‘Here, we’re writing and we’re creating.'”

They debuted the new song — the epic, eight-minute The Lords of Summer — at their concert in Bogotá, Colombia on March 16th. It’s the band’s first original music since 2012’s Beyond Magnetic EP, and those tracks were outtakes from the band’s 2008 LP Death Magnetic. Metallica are on the first part of their Metallica by Request tour.

Listen to The Lords of Summer below.

  • Les Binks is better than Jar Jar Binks on

    James is a caricature now, his singing is overblown and worse each year.

    Everything has a shelf life!

    Sick of the obligatory South America soccer chant Hey hey hey hey crap. Debut it in America in a smaller venue. And I agree about the jumbo tron. When you become bigger than life, its time to stop being bigger than life. Don’t ever forget where you came from. Hell, even the Stones once in awhile play a bar to keep it fresh.

      Would you rather see the audience standing with their arms crossed not getting into their music? This is a rock concert! I could care less if they’re playing in a venue of less than 1,000 people let alone 50,000.

    They might as well call themselves Rockallica now. You will barely notice the difference.
