Fresh from the release of new single If Darkness Had A Son, Metallica are ramping up the excitement for 72 Seasons with their upcoming global listening party.

For one night only on April 13, the metal legends will be previewing their new album at cinemas around the world – in Dolby Atmos – for fans ahead of its release the following day. As well as playing the album in full, the 72 Seasons – Global Premiere will play music videos and exclusive album commentary from the band.

Watch the trailer below, and get your tickets here.

Frontman James Hetfield has previously explained that the meaning behind 72 Seasons is about “the first 18 years of our lives that form our true selves”.

“The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents,” he shared. “A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is re-enactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”

For more Metallica goodness, we’re releasing a book – Kerrang! Living Loud: Four Decades On The Frontline Of Rock, Metal, Punk, And Alternative Music – on April 6, with a foreword from the one and only Lars Ulrich. Pre-order your copy now.
