The final piece of the jigsaw is finally in place and Metallica have now revealed that their hugely anticipated new album entitled ‘Death Magnetic‘ will be released in the UK and the rest of the world on September 12th 2008.
Also, for you collector types out there Metallica have put together something special for when “Death Magnetic” is released.
A special edition box in the shape of a coffin will come out on the same day as the album. It will include the full CD; along with everything cool relating to “Death Magnetic”.
Inside the box there will be a CD with the demos of the songs plus a DVD of even more “making of the album” footage not seen on the band’s new website, Mission: Metallica. There will also be a t-shirt which is only available in this box, a flag, guitar picks, and a fold out poster along with a collector’s credit card embossed with a code to redeem a free download of a special European show happening in September (full details coming soon!).
The coffin box will only be available through metallica.com, metclub.com, and missionmetallica.com
The band also headlines Leeds (August 22nd) and Reading (August 24th) festivals !
