METALLICA have released the official music video for the new song “Screaming Suicide”
The track is taken from the band’s upcoming 12th studio album, “72 Seasons“, which is set to arrive on April 14 via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. Produced by Greg Fidelman with METALLICA‘s James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track “72 Seasons” is METALLICA‘s first full-length collection of new material since 2016’s “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct“.
Says METALLICA: “We’re back with another taste from ‘72 Seasons‘, the new album coming out on April 14. ‘Screaming Suicide‘, the second track we’re releasing in advance, is now available to stream and download and as an instant grat with all album pre-orders.”
Adds METALLICA frontman James Hetfield: “‘Screaming Suicide‘ addresses the taboo word of suicide. The intention is to communicate about the darkness we feel inside. It’s ridiculous to think we should deny that we have these thoughts. At one point or another, I believe most people have thought about it. To face it is to speak the unspoken. If it’s a human experience, we should be able to talk about it. You are not alone.”
Regarding the Tim Saccenti-directed “Screaming Suicide” music video, METALLICA said: “We first worked with Tim on ‘Lux Æterna‘ and were so blown away that we asked him to come back for round two.”
