Metallica rarely do things small, and that goes for plans to premiere their new album 72 Seasons as well. In fact, the band has teamed with Trafalgar Releasing to extend an open invite to their fans to listen to the album using movie theater sound systems while playing in theaters around the world.
The one-night only global listening party is set to take place on Thursday, April 13, with the new record spooling out over pummeling surround sound systems used for cinematic audiences worldwide. And this is no ordinary album listen, as the group has a music video and exclusive commentary accompanying each song on the record. So, you get the music, you get some insight and you get some visual entertainment as well.
Fans have already had a chance to hear the lead single “Lux Æterna” as well as the recently released follow-up “Screaming Suicide,” but this will be the first chance for many fans get to hear the full album, which is due for release online and in stores on April 14.
So how do you get your hands on tickets for this special event? Well, tickets will go on sale beginning Thursday, March 2 via the new Metallica Film website. You can currently visit the website for updates and to set a reminder on your calendar.
