Apart from 27 live albums due later this year, Metallica will be releasing a 10th anniversary edition of their film Some Kind Of Monster on BluRay and DVD. Here’s what the band offered regarding the re-release:
“A lot has happened since 2004 and we’ll bring you up to speed by including the feature Metallica: This Monster Lives, a 25-minute follow-up piece filmed at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2013 during the release of our second film, Metallica Through the Never.
It includes interview footage with us along with directors Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky and looks at the decade since the original release of the film. This feature along with the full film and all the extras from the original 2005 DVD release will be included on the Blu-ray and DVD.
This is also that the first time the film will be available on Blu-ray. Metallica: This Monster Lives will also be available along with the original film on the digital releases.”
As stated in the title, the band will also be releasing a limited edition “Lords of Summer” 12″ vinyl on November 28th as part of the Record Store Day celebration. Here are the details on that:
We love celebrating Black Friday with our friends at local record stores and this year our By Request tour “new” song, “Lords of Summer,” will be making its vinyl debut on November 28, 2014 as part of Record Store Day.
The limited edition 12-inch vinyl will include the “First Pass” (studio) version on side A as well as a live version recorded at the Rock In Rome Sonisphere Festival on July 1, 2014. Side B will feature a laser etching of our “M” logo… it won’t play on your turntable, but it looks pretty damn cool!
