This time out, along with hits, rarities and concert recordings from throughout the band’s iconic career, Mandatory Metallica will feature music from Metallica’s new album, Hardwired…to self-destruct, due out November 18th.
There will also be a special edition of SiriusXM’s “Town Hall” series, with James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Rob Trujillo answering questions from a select group of SiriusXM listeners in the SiriusXM studios in New York City. The “Town Hall” special will be hosted by music journalist and SiriusXM host David Fricke,
