article imageLars Ulrich: Metallica in the 'fourth inning' of next album

By Nora Meszaros     Apr 26, 2014 in Entertainment
Six years since their last studio album, Metallica are seeing their way across multiple summer festivals in Europe and working on material for a new LP – and it’s about time.
Drummer Lars Ulrich told Rolling Stone Magazine “doing riffs and putting them into songs” for the upcoming album is not a song-a-day process. He said Metallica has been working on the new album “on and off” for the better part of a year, confirming rumours earlier this month that the release is slated for 2015.
“We’re in the fourth inning,” are the words Ulrich used to describe the stage of the game right now for the new album, which may be out as late as 2016, according to Rolling Stone.
Ulrich and the rest of the band will meet in studio in May to decide on production and recording, and to finalize songwriting, NME reports.
Despite the slow process of getting all the pieces together for the LP, Loudwire reports that Metallica has already tested the waters with new music, including playing their new song, “Lords of Summer,” to several audiences around the world now.
According to NME, speculation has been mounting about whether Metallica will take the stage this June at Glastonbury Festival, but the band is a confirmed headliner for Sonisphere Festival this July.
