(hennemusic) Metallica are sharing behind-the-scenes footage of the filming of the video for "Hardwired", the lead track from their forthcoming album, "Hardwired... To Self Destruct."

Co-directed and produced by Colin Shane Hakes, the band took over a high school gymnasium in San Rafael, CA on August 16 to shoot the video ahead of its release on August 18.

The band says the concept for the "Hardwired" video was "a good old fashioned chaotic, gritty, dirty performance of perhaps the most ripping, super-charged and thrashiest song Metallica has written since the '80s but with a twist - this video was to be one take. One shot. No edits. No nip, no tuck.

"One continuous shot captured by the camera going counter-clockwise around the performing band with the song's chaos and energy being reflected by a flash-bulb-strobe-like lighting effect, making it look like a series of disorienting fast-edits but (in truth) being nothing of the sort."

Metallica released the "Hardwired" video just two days after it was filmed and two days before its live debut during a show at the new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, MN. Watch the clip here.
