By AFP 19 August 2016

Heavy metal band Metallica is coming out with its first album in eight years, the group announced Thursday.

The rockers’ 11th studio album will be called “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct” and go on sale in November, the band said.

It follows “Death Magnetic,” which came out in 2008.

“It really does exist! We know it’s been a long time coming, but today we proudly introduce you to ‘Hardwired… To Self-Destruct,’ the long awaited next Metallica studio album,” the band said on its Facebook page.

Metallica formed in 1981 in Los Angeles and went on to become one of the world’s most successful bands, selling tens of millions of albums.
