Metallica is getting ready to put out another single before they release Hardwired… To Self-Destruct on Nov 18th and they’ve chosen Halloween as the day to put it out. You’ll be able to hear ‘Atlas, Rise!’ at 3pm ET. UNLESS you feel like doing some work.
Here’s what you do if you want to hear the new song a half-hour earlier (from Metallica.com):
To help you get into the Halloween spirit, starting this Friday, October 28th, fans around the world can visit select independent record stores for the chance to obtain a free limited edition Hardwired…To Self-Destruct Halloween mask. Inside of each mask, you’ll find a special access code that will allow you to hear “Atlas, Rise!” 30 minutes prior to its official release on Halloween.
Pretty neat, eh? If you want that song before other people, you have to work for it! And you get a free mask. The full list of record stores can be found right here. It doesn’t look like there is a location in Waterloo Region, unless I missed it, but there are spots in Burlington, Hamilton, London, and Stratford.
