METALLICA: Watch The Band Perform ‘Hardwired’ And ‘Atlas, Rise!’ Live For BBC Radio 1 Session
November 21st, 2016

San Francisco, California-based heavy metal band Metallica recorded a 5-track session at the Maida Vale Studios in London, England on November 17th, 2016 for the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show. Footage of Metallica performing the songs ‘Hardwired’ and ‘Atlas, Rise!’ can be viewed in the clips below.

Metallica issued tenth full-length studio album Hardwired…To Self-Destruct on November 18th, 2016 through their own Blackened Recordings label.

The outing was made available as a double CD, double LP (including limited edtion coloured vinyl), digital download, and CD and vinyl deluxe versions. The latter included a third bonus disc featuring the following: a 2016 version of June 2014 single ‘Lords Of Summer’, ‘Ronnie Rising Medley’ (originally only available on the 2014 Ronnie James Dio – This Is Your Life tribute album), cover versions of Deep Purple’s ‘When a Blind Man Cries’ and Iron Maiden’s ‘Remember Tomorrow’, live recordings from Metallica’s set on Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in Berkeley, California on April 16th, 2016, and a live version of ‘Hardwired’ recorded at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota on August 20th, 2016. It had originally been announced that the deluxe edition bonus discs would include ‘Lords Of Summer’ along with 13 additional tracks which the band described as “the riffs that were the origins of the album.” However, the ‘Riff Origins’ tracks were later shelved in favour of the cover songs and live material.
