Long Wait For New Metallica
Metallica's Lars Ulrich revealed that it will be a long wait for new music from the band. When asked how close Metallica fans are to seeing a new studio album from the band, Ulrich said, "I wouldn't use the word 'close.' I mean, obviously, in the context of, say, the age of planet Earth, we're pretty close. But in the context of, say, other things, there may be one or two football seasons, or one or two baseball seasons, or one or two hockey seasons… We've gotta do this movie, and we're gonna get back to writing when we've done this movie. I would say late '13 or early '14.
"It's difficult to imagine… I think even late '13 may be a bit optimistic. I would say hopefully we can realistically get a record out probably about a year and half from now, so maybe early '14."
But Metallica are filming a 3D movie soon. Predators director Nimród Antal will film the band's August 24-25 concerts at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada, for a movie. "The rest of the film will be shot the next two or three weeks after the shows in Vancouver, into the middle to the third week of September," Ulrich said
