Lars Ulrich will host his METALLICA bandmates on "It's Electric", his online radio show on Apple Music's Beats 1. The episodes were recorded in Canada earlier this month at various tour stops on the band's "WorldWired" North American tour and are unlike anything METALLICA fans have ever heard before. The series will kick off this Sunday, July 30, one day after the band rocks the famed Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, and will feature discussions and playlists that have inspired the individual members of METALLICA and emphasizes the personalities and dynamics of each of them.
The forthcoming episodes with the members of METALLICA will air on the following dates:
Kirk Hammett - Sunday, July 30
Robert Trujillo - Sunday, August 6
James Hetfield - Sunday, August 13
Launched on May 7, "It's Electric" is an unscripted, unfiltered weekly window into the mind of METALLICA's Lars Ulrich. Hear music that excites this great Dane, as well as chats with artists who inspire him... all wrapped in magnificently mindless banter!
Since its launch, the show has featured guests Iggy Pop, RANCID's Lars Frederiksen, AVENGED SEVENFOLD's M. Shadows, ROYAL BLOOD, KABUL DREAMS, Glastonbury Festival co-organizer Emily Eavis, Rolling Stone's Kory Grow, So What! magazine editor Steffan Chirazi, and more.
"It's Electric" airs every Sunday at 3:00 p.m. PST, with an encore every Monday at 3:00 a.m. PST. Listen live at www.apple.co/beats1onair.
The North American leg of METALLICA's "WorldWired" trek will hit stadiums in eight more cities before ending in mid-August.
The next stop on the tour is Pasadena, California on Saturday, July 29.
