Until now, Metallica have never performed at Rock on The Range (or any other World’s Loudest Month Festival). Yesterday the band’s new studio album Hardwired…To Self-Destruct debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, selling 291,000 units. It is the band’s sixth #1 album and was produced by Greg Fidelman. The band released the album on November 16 via double-disc CD, vinyl, deluxe edition CD + vinyl, and digital download.
