Metallica’s Stage Shaking Performance of ‘Lords of Summer’ Completes Video Roll Out
We've reached the end of Metallica's video roll out, but the band is making sure to end it on a high note. They've released the video for their bonus track "Lords of Summer."
"Lords of Summer" has been a key track for the band in recent years. After issuing the "first pass" version of the song in late 2013, the band added it to their sets just so they would have something new to play. It also help to keep fans engaged while they worked on new music. And while it's not one of the 12 songs that make up the track listing for Hardwired ... To Self-Destruct, it does lead off the deluxe edition versions of the new album.
For the new video for the track, Brett Murray takes on directing duties, capturing the band's aggressive performance of the song from right up onstage while interjecting some of the insanely energetic audience reaction to the track as well. Watch it all play out in the player above.
Metallica will release Hardwired ... To Self-Destruct at select music stores at midnight this evening, kicking off their "Blackened Friday" activities. They're also set to perform at the House of Vans in London Friday night (Nov. 18) with the show being webcast for viewers around the world. If you want to go ahead and pre-order the disc, you may do so here.
