METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich told England's Kerrang! magazine that the band will play songs from its upcoming new album this summer on at least one of its festival dates. Speaking about the band's recently announced headlining appearance at the UK's Reading and Leeds Festivals in late August, Ulrich said, "We're psyched to play some new songs. In fact, if we don't, then I give people permission to come and find me and slap me across the face! We're certainly planning on rolling out some of the new songs for the first time, but right now our focus is on finishing the record. As soon as that's out of the way, we'll be hitting the rehearsal room and getting to grips with playing these bastards live!"

METALLICA's yet-to-be-titled ninth studio album is tentatively due out in September. The band is said to be in the final stages of recording.

Ahahahahaha! I wonder how they got Mr Money Ulrich to play in such a poor country? Community service to the Metal Kingdom for 4 bad albums in a row?
