Metallica have just announced a giant run of world tour dates for 2023 and 2024. The band will play two shows in each city they visit (four shows in Mexico City) with different opening acts on Night 1 and Night 2.

In Europe, Night 1 opening acts will be Architects and Mammoth WVH, while Night 2 will feature Five Finger Death Punch and Ice Nine Kills. In North America, Night 1 will feature Pantera and Mammoth WVH, while Night 2 will boast Five Finger Death Punch and Ice Nine Kills.

Metallica also just announced their 12th studio album, 72 Seasons, and debuted the old-school sounding song, "Lux Aeterna." The 12-track, 77-minute album, produced by Greg Feldman, James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, is set to arrive on April 14, 2023, and serves as the successor to 2016's Hardwired... To Self-Destruct.
