Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett says in a new radio interview that the band's new studio album, the follow up to 2008's "Death Magnetic," will "most likely" be released next year.

Hammett told Buffalo, NY radio station 103.3 The Edge WEDG-FM, "Well, you know, we're moving forward. We're hoping that the album will be released next year. It's pretty much more along the same lines as 'Death Magnetic' - kind of like that direction. And, you know, we'll see.

"We're into it. I don't wanna say that we're a third into it, or two-thirds into it, or an eighth into it, 'cause anything could happen that'll just change that number.

"But, eventually, you will see a new Metallica album, and it will most likely be in 2016, and at the very worst, at the beginning of 2017." Listen to the full interview here.
