Metallica Are Filming a Video for Every Song from their "Hardwired…to Self-Destruct" LP
Metallica released a video of their new song, “Atlas, Rise!” this week, the third track to be released from Hardwired...To Self-Destruct, and follows previously released tracks "Hardwired" and "Moth Into Flame."
The band recently told the Straits Times that plans call for the group to post music videos for all 12 of the tracks on the record.
“You have to accept the way that the world is spinning,” drummer Lars Ulrich said. “Now that YouTube is the world’s biggest television station, we figured we may as well knock a video out for every song.”
“The practicality of shooting 12 music videos is kind of crazy, especially when you’re trying to promote your record, and you’re all over the place, and trying to make sure it doesn’t leak,” he explained. “It’s crazy but, at the same time, fun.”
