METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo recently told the Orlando, Florida radio station WJRR about the band's touring plans in support of "Hardwired...To Self-Destruct": "We will be definitely getting out there and touring this one hard. The thing is it's a new baby. With the release of the album and figuring out the setlist, and also being very excited about that, it takes time. And nurturing the show as well — everything from visual production to sound design and that whole thing. It's really exciting for all of us, including management. Usually, with the States, we really wanna come in and there's no experimenting; we want it to be right and solid. So we will be touring the States next year; it's just we're still developing the production to bring it out there. We've done a few things here and there — we played in Minneapolis very recently and we played in San Francisco also fairly recently. So we're juicing up the machine here. We're getting there. People are just gonna have to be a little bit more patient with us. I know it took a while to get the album finished and mixed and mastered, and release is right there, coming up very soon. But at the same time, now we've gotta get the show right. And it's all gonna be happening."
