METALLICA kicked off a four-night residency on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last Monday night (April 10) by sitting down for a chat with host Jimmy Kimmel and performing “Lux Æterna”, the lead single from the band’s upcoming album, “72 Seasons”. During the interview portion of their appearance on the ABC program, Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo, James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich talked about being on the show all week, young people being into their music, “Master Of Puppets” exploding after “Stranger Things”, their kids being musicians, their cover song competition for high school and college marching bands, going on tour and doing two nights in each city, pressing their own vinyl records, and the first albums that each of them ever bought. You can watch video below.

“Jimmy Kimmel Live!” has the distinction of being the longest-running late night program still on the air.

Last Friday, when METALLICA first announced its “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” residency, the band wrote on social media: “In a first for the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show, it’s ‘Metallica Week,’ as we will be the musical guest each night, beginning on Monday, April 10, through Thursday, April 13. We’ll be playing live for all four shows, and you’ll also catch us on the couch, chatting with Jimmy one night. Keep your eyes peeled for other sightings during the broadcast, as we really don’t know what else Jimmy will get us involved in!”

METALLICA’s 12th studio album, “72 Seasons”, is out on April 14 via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. The band have issued the following message: “You know we love our indie record stores… over 300 shops around the world are joining us in our 72 Seasons celebrations and hosting official listening parties! And over 100 of those parties are happening at midnight. We can’t wait for you to hear the album and hope you can join in the shenanigans at your local record store!”

Produced by Greg Fidelman with James Hetfield & Lars Ulrich and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track “72 Seasons” is the band’s first full-length collection of new material since 2016’s “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.”
