(hennemusic) Metallica's latest studio album "Hardwired…To Self-Destruct" has achieved platinum status in the US for sales of 1 million copies since its release in November of last year.

According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the project reached the plateau on April 12 through sales of a million equivalent album units, which blend traditional album sales, tracks sold from an album and on-demand audio and video streams.

Metallica recently saw a jump in sales of their tenth album when it was offered as part of a bundle with tickets to their summer stadium tour of North America when they went on sale in mid-February.

Fans could choose a physical CD or digital download, with redemptions of albums officially counting as a final sale in the week the customer redeems/receives the album. Read more here.
