Preceded by the newly released album track Screaming Suicide and its brand-new lyric video, and first single Lux Æterna — hailed upon its November 28th release as “thundering, breakneck” (Billboard),”gut-punching” (Rolling Stone) and “blistering” (USA Today) — 72 Seasons will be released April 14th through Metallica’s own Blackened Recordings. Produced by Greg Fidelman with James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track 72 Seasons is the band’s first full length collection of new material since 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.
