Metallica release new song Too Far Gone

METALLICA, the legendary thrash metal titans, have delivered an electrifying surprise to their fans with the release of “Too Far Gone? (Live From MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ – August 6, 2023).” This digital single captures a historic moment from the “M72” tour—a standout performance of the beloved track during the North American opening weekend.

Unveiling a Rocking Night

On that memorable night, under the starry skies of East Rutherford, NJ, METALLICA unleashed the full force of their music to a roaring crowd of approximately 80,000 fans. “Too Far Gone?” emerged as a fan favorite, celebrated for its roaring melody. The OC Register raved about the performance in their review of METALLICA’s record-breaking weekend at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.

Since then, “Too Far Gone?” has rapidly earned its place in the spotlight, becoming an essential component of the “M72” “No Repeat Weekend” setlist rotation—an experience METALLICA fans have come to cherish.

An Artistic Visual Rendition

The studio version of “Too Far Gone?” has also undergone a transformation, evolving into a captivating music video directed by Coan “Buddy” Nichols. Known for his creative lens on projects such as “The Original Skateboarder,” “The Body Corporate,” “Deathbowl To Downtown,” and “Love Letters To Skateboarding,” Nichols brings a unique vision to METALLICA’s music.

In the video, “Too Far Gone?” serves as the backdrop to raw METALLICA performance footage, interwoven with thrilling action shots featuring professional skateboarder Felipe Nunes. The energy from the music and the skateboard stunts amplify each other, creating moments of intense hyperkinetic energy. And if you look closely, you might catch a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo by the skateboarding legend himself, Tony Hawk, who premiered the video.

The “M72” Tour Continues to Rock

METALLICA recently wrapped up the first leg of the “M72” world tour in Glendale, Arizona, on September 9. However, their journey is far from over. On October 8, they will headline Power Trip at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, before resuming the “M72” tour with another “No Repeat Weekend” scheduled for November 3 and 5 at the Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

Sponsored globally by Liquid Death and Blackened American Whiskey (exclusive to North America) and promoted by Live Nation, the “M72” trek comprises 46 shows and kicked off in Amsterdam on April 27. It promises fans all over Europe and North America an unforgettable experience, featuring two distinct setlists and support lineups during each “No Repeat Weekend.” Notably, the “M72” tour introduces a striking new in-the-round stage design that positions the iconic METALLICA Snake Pit at the center stage. Also, fans under 16 years of age can now enjoy discounted tickets.

Opening acts for the tour include renowned bands such as PANTERA, MAMMOTH WVH, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, ICE NINE KILLS, ARCHITECTS, VOLBEAT, and GRETA VAN FLEET, making it an all-encompassing rock spectacle.

“Too Far Gone?” and “72 Seasons” Soar

“Too Far Gone?” is a track from METALLICA’s latest album, “72 Seasons,” which made an explosive debut by selling 146,000 equivalent album units in its first week in the U.S., securing the No. 2 position on the Billboard 200 chart. This accomplishment marked the band’s 12th Top 10-charting album, with eight of them reaching the top two.

The success of “72 Seasons” is further highlighted by its distinction as the most significant week for any rock or hard rock album since TOOL’s “Fear Inoculum” in September 2019, which debuted with 270,000 equivalent album units.

Released on April 14 via METALLICA’s own Blackened Recordings and produced by Greg Fidelman, with the creative input of guitarist/vocalist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich, “72 Seasons” marked the band’s first full-length collection of new material since “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.”

A Collaborative Creative Journey

Speaking about the album-making process, Lars Ulrich reflected, “It’s one of the only things that hasn’t changed in 40 years. There’ll be a whole slew of riffs and jams and sound checks, then it falls into my lap to go through them and identify, ‘That one’s great, that one’s good, maybe there’s a song over here.'”

Notably, “72 Seasons” saw a shift towards more collaborative songwriting, with guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo receiving writing credits on over half of the album’s tracks. This marked a departure from the band’s usual creative process, with all four members actively participating in the songwriting sessions.

Kirk Hammett expressed, “It was much more collaborative. The attitude was just more open. There are fewer limitations on everyone’s creativity, and I think that shows.”

METALLICA’s Ever-Evolving Journey

In the seven years since the release of “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct,” METALLICA has continued to push creative boundaries and explore new horizons. They’ve reissued classic albums, released a second live album in collaboration with the San Francisco Symphony, commissioned a covers album featuring renowned artists like GHOST, VOLBEAT, WEEZER, Corey Taylor, and THE HU, and even saw their iconic “Master Of Puppets” surge on the Billboard songs chart after being featured prominently in the hit Netflix show “Stranger Things.”
