Metallica Album Work Was Started Before Their New Movie
Bassist Rob Trujillo has confirmed the follow-up to 2008′s Death Magnetic is due to appear next year – after the release of the cinema extravaganza and its associated soundtrack album.
Speaking exclusively to Classic Rock, Trujillo says: "Before all the film stuff, we were jamming these ideas and having a lot of fun. But we got sidetracked." He adds, "In 2014 it'll be all about getting new music – without any interruptions, hopefully."
He admits the band are nowhere near completing any songs, but they're sitting on a stockpile of jams that pick up where their previous record left off.
"It feels like Death Magnetic was the launch pad – it's the introduction to what we have now," says Trujillo. Read what else he had to say here.
