First it was digital, then it was compact disc, now the Beyond Magnetic EP will be available on vinyl to celebrate Record Store Day on April 21, 2012. We’ve always been big supporters of our friends at independent retail and the annual event the third Saturday of each April... we even helped kick off the first year in 2008 with an in-store appearance at one of our hometown stores! To add to the fun, this is no ordinary black vinyl release, but instead will be on silver vinyl with an exclusive Metallica sticker included in the package. Look for the EP on the special Saturday release date at your favorite local record store and on Metallica.com.
As a refresher, the Beyond Magnetic EP consists of four unreleased rough mixes of tracks from the Death Magnetic sessions that were debuted live during our anniversary celebrations at the Fillmore Theatre in San Francisco in December of last year. After giving them to all Fan Club members for free, those songs were available on iTunes and other at digital retailers, later coming out on CD in January.
Our international friends will be able to pick up the EP on April 20, 2012 at their favorite independent record store.
