Metallica Make Skate Decks Now
Actually, Metallica have made skate decks before, because of course they have, they’re Metallica, there is no product for which they won’t potentially license their logo. But now Metallica make… uh… more unique?… more expensive?… anyway yeah they’re teaming up with Dogtown Skateboards to make a limited edition new deck. The art on the deck, which was “Inspired by ‘80s Dogtown & Metallica styles,” was designed by Jim “Red Dog” Muir, whose brother just so happens to be Mike Muir from Suicidal Tendencies, the band of which ‘Tallica bassist Robert Trujillo just so happens to be a former member.
Check out the official announcement from the band below:

Available now at Metallica.com, the Probity Merch UK/EU Metallica Shop and DogtownSkates.com. ・・・ Inspired by ‘80s Dogtown & Metallica styles, the board shape and airbrush paint were designed by Jim “Red Dog” Muir and produced by Professor Schmitt at PS STIX. The graphic art was perfectly blended by Sean Cliver. The graphic was silk screened the old-fashioned way by Chicken at Screaming Squeegees. ・・・ @dogtownskate @jimreddogmuir
