Tomorrow, Wednesday April 30th, the band will shoot a video for the title track of their upcoming album, “St. Anger”. This will be the first track from the album going out to… wherever the fuck it goes out to.
The location will not be your normal-run-of-the-mill place. Metallica is headed to the big house, not just any big house, but THE BIG HOUSE, San Quentin State Prison, spitting distance from Metallica HQ. In exchange for using the grounds, the band will perform an hour long set the next day, Thursday, for the – eh – captive audience.
The boys will be working with the Malloy Brothers to direct the video. Malloy Brothers have previously worked with, among others, the Foo Fighters, 311, plus developing and filming their own brand of Surf Movies.
Metallica.com will be there both days covering these exclusive, once in a lifetime events.
