METALLICA's Live Shit: Binge and Purge video will tentatively be released on DVD on November 12th, according to the group's official web site. For $59.99, you will receive two DVD discs (San Diego and Seattle shows) and three audio discs (the Mexico City shows) all packaged together in some sort of a box, but will be smaller than the original so that it can be found in the CD section. Details are still being worked out, but it appears that both the stencil and the sticky pass will be part of the set. The book will be on one of the DVDs to download and print and will also be available on Metallica.com for downloading.
Also on the METALLICA front, the first-ever book of METALLICA lyrics will be available on October 1st with all the lyrics to more than 70 songs. Titled Metallica: The Complete Lyrics, the hardcover book includes an introduction written by Steffan Chirazi, the editor of So What!, METALLICA's quarterly Fan Club magazine.
