Metallica Release “Moth Into Flame” S&M² Performance
Metallica have released their “Moth Into Flame” performance from last year’s S&M² performance with the San Francisco Symphony. The performance is part of the upcoming S&M² audio and video box set, which will be out on August 28, and can be pre-ordered here.
As it happened, S&M² ended up being the last time Metallica performed together. Their fall 2019 shows were postponed when James Hetfield went to rehab, and all of their 2020 touring plans were postponed due to the coronavirus.
Bassist Robert Trujillo recently said that Metallica are working on new music over the internet while in quarantine, echoing Lars Ulrich’s earlier comments that the band would look at doing that if the isolation dragged on.
