Representatives for Metallica's management (QPrime) and record label (Warner Bros.) have both rejected as "false" rumors that the band will be headlining this summer's Ozzfest.
Metallica have lined up a number of European festival appearances as part of their "Escape From The Studio '06" tour, including slots at Germany's Rock Am Ring and U.K.'s Download festivals.
Metallica recently confirmed in a posting on their official web site that they have recruited Rick Rubin (Slayer, System of a Down, Slipknot, Audioslave, Red Hot Chili Peppers) to produce their forthcoming studio LP. The news was accompanied on the site by several pictures of Metallica in the studio with a shoeless Rubin.
Metallica officially began the songwriting process for their new album late last year and are expected to spend the next few months compiling ideas before entering the final recording stage. A late 2006/early 2007 release via Warner Bros. is expected.
