LARS ULRICH Offers Update On METALLICA's Next Album

In a recent interview with Revolver Magazine, Lars Ulrich discussed the current progress of Metallica's next studio album, stating that the band is still in the early process of writing:

"We’re in the early stages of writing, and all I can say is there are some good things lurking. It’s fun. Between doing the film and the Orion Festival, we’ve been taking a few days here and there to shift through riffs and get all that shit done. We’ve got to put them into song shape and get our asses in the studio. I hope we can do that by the end of the year, maybe early next year. 2014 is a bit optimistic for the album to come out, so ’15 is more realistic.

But listen, there’s no rush. It’s gonna take what it takes. I don’t feel stressed about it, but that doesn’t mean we don’t care. Ten years ago, 20 years ago, we were in this whole cycle where we would write-record-tour, write-record-tour. Now we have a different way of being in the band. We like to play every year, but we don’t want to play 200 shows in a row and then take a year off. We like to play 30 shows, 40 shows. It’s better than playing 200 shows one year, and then no shows the next year. It’s cool to be doing these different types of things and new records are fun and cool, and there will be a new Metallica record, but I can’t stress myself out over it."

Metallica will be performing live tomorrow night at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, the show will be streamed online through Facebook, and Xbox Live (watch here).
