METALLICA will spend an entire week in November as the musical guests on "The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson".
Says the band: "We're excited to celebrate Craig Ferguson's final season on CBS as he has asked us to join him for an entire week of performances starting Monday, November 17th. We'll be playing every night that week and on the first night (Monday) we'll sit down with Craig to chat about all things 'TALLICA.
Members of METALLICA's official fan club, Met Club, should log in to the band's web site for information about how they can be guests in the studio audience during the filming of the show in Los Angeles, California.
"The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" airs weeknights at 12:35 a.m. EST.
Ferguson announced his exit from "The Late Late Show" in April, a short time after David Letterman revealed he would be retiring from the "Late Show" next year.
Ferguson is averaging 1.3 million viewers this season, according to USA Today.
METALLICA will release a limited 12-inch vinyl single of the new song "The Lords Of Summer" on Record Store Day Black Friday, November 28.
The single will feature the "first pass" studio version of the song as well as a live take recorded in Rome in July. This collectable vinyl will only be available through independent record stores and Metallica.com.
METALLICA is reportedly getting back to work this fall on its 10th studio album, due out sometime in 2015.
