Metallica Are Releasing A New Song On Halloween & You Can Preview It Right Now

As Metallica gear up towards the release of their new album Hardwired… To Self Destruct, they’ve announced that they’ll be sharing another song from the album on Halloween.

The new track is called Atlas, Rise!, and the band have uploaded a preview of the track along with a countdown to their official website. The full version will be available in Australia at 6am on Tuesday, 1st November, which is still Halloween in the US.

Atlas, Rise! will be the third song to be lifted from Metallica’s forthcoming album, following title track Hardwired in August and Moth Into Flame, which was unveiled last month.

Metallica are also giving away a bunch of free, limited-edition Hardwired… To Self-Destruct Halloween masks at independent record stores around the world (but sadly not in Australia) from Friday, 28th October. Inside the masks, fans will find a special access code that will allow them to be the first to hear Atlas, Rise! before the official release.

For the full list of participating stores head to Metallica’s official website.

Hardwired… To Self Destruct will be released on 18th November.
