METALLICA performed its new song "Atlas, Rise!" live for the first time last night (Tuesday, November 1) at Hipódromo de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. Professionally filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.
"Atlas, Rise!" is the third cut to be released from METALLICA's forthcoming album, "Hardwired... To Self-Destruct", due for release on the band's own Blackened Recordings on November 18. It follows previously released tracks "Hardwired" and "Moth Into Flame".
The long-awaited follow-up to 2008's "Death Magnetic", "Hardwired... To Self-Destruct" consists of two discs, containing a dozen songs and nearly 80 minutes of music.
"Hardwired...To Self-Destruct" was produced by Greg Fidelman with frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich. The band recorded the disc at its own studio.
Instead of a previously announced bonus disc of demos, the deluxe edition of the album will now feature a number of cover songs that the band has recorded over the past few years, including a medley of Ronnie James Dio songs, IRON MAIDEN's "Remember Tomorrow" and DEEP PURPLE's "When A Blind Man Cries".
The deluxe version will also feature a live set recorded at Rasputin's in Berkeley, California on Record Store Day 2016 and a live version of the new song "Hardwired" recorded in August at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
METALLICA appeared at Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit in Mountain View, California on October 22 and October 23.
