Metallica are just days away from releasing their new one 72 seasons album – and they have some surprises in store for fans. Not only do they have a world premiere in theaters, but the band will take over Jimmy Kimmel Live! for a special Metallica week. They shared the special news on social media and noted that they will be playing jams for Jimmy and his audience every night.
“In a premiere for the Jimmy Kimmel Live! Show it’s ‘Metallica Week’ as we will be the musical guest each night beginning Monday April 10th through Thursday April 13th,” they wrote on Twitter.
“We’ll be playing live on all four shows, and you’ll catch us on the couch chatting to Jimmy one night too. Keep an eye out for more sightings during the show because we really don’t know what else Jimmy is going to drag us into!” they also added, accordingly NME.

The band have collaborated with Kimmel on projects in the past, as the publication noted that he was the host of the Helping Hands charity concert where Metallica performed “Nothing Else Matters” with St. Vincent last December. The event was streamed on Paramount+ and was “dedicated to creating sustainable communities by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger and other important local services.”
72 seasons will be released on April 14th. via Blackened Recordings. More information can be found here.
