METALLICA Frontman Talks To Collider.com About 'Through The Never' Movie
On September 9, Steve 'Frosty' Weintraub of Collider.com conducted an interview with METALLICA frontman James Hetfield in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. You can now watch the chat below.
Picturehouse has announced that METALLICA's James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo will make in-theater appearances in celebration of the opening weekend of "Metallica Through The Never" at select IMAX theatres around the country September 26-28.
"Metallica Through The Never" recently premiered at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival and stars METALLICA, one of the most popular, influential rock bands in history, and critically acclaimed actor Dane DeHaan. "Metallica Through The Never" is a music-driven, 3D motion picture event directed by Nimród Antal and co-written by Antal with Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett and Trujillo.
Antal immerses audiences in a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience with spectacular live performance footage of METALLICA's most iconic songs — created exclusively for the film — combined with a bold, narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band's trailblazing iconography. Dane DeHaan ("The Place Beyond The Pines") portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission, during METALLICA's roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. The film features dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built and state-of-the-art 3D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously.
"Metallica Through The Never" opens exclusively at select IMAX theatres nationwide on September 27 and will expand into additional theatres and cities on October 4.

Metallica to Appear on The Colbert Report on Tuesday
Halestorm is giving us a preview of their upcoming, second EP of covers, ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVeRs eP. The band’s heavy metal version of Daft Punk’s smash hit “Get Lucky” can now be streamed at RevolverMag.com.

"We decided to go more 'bare bones' with this EP, meaning minimal production with live, gritty performances. We hope all our fans have as much fun with ReAniMate: 2.0 as we did!"
ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVeRs eP will arrive at all the usual outlets on October 15. Here’s the track list:

Kings of Leon Say Their Lyrics Can Be Interpreted in “Many Different Ways”
Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington profile a fan with a whole lot of tattoos in their new lyrics video for “Black Heart,” the next single from the band’s debut EP, High Rise.
The three-minute clip features close-ups of a man with a wide variety of tattoos all over his body which feature the song’s lyrics, along with pictures of skulls, scorpions, spiders and guns.
High Rise will arrive at all the usual outlets on October 8. In addition to “Black Heart,” the EP will feature four other cuts: “Same on the Inside,” “Cry Cry,” “Tomorrow” and the group’s first single, “Out of Time.”

If you think you understand what Kings of Leon are singing about in their songs, think again. Bassist Jared Followill says while the band doesn’t consciously write lyrics that can have different meanings, it always seems to wind up that way.
“So many of our songs can be interpreted in so many different ways,” he tellsHitFix.com. “At the time you can actually write something, and it can be completely abstract to you at the time, and then a year later something will happen to you and you’ll listen back and be like, ‘Wow, that song sounds like it was written perfectly for the situation.'”
Followill adds that the guys go through a unique process of elimination to figure out which songs ideas they‘re going to use for their albums. “We will literally jam on a song and play it for an hour straight,” he explains. “Sometimes you have to sift through an hour and 20 minutes and you always skip it towards the end because that’s when you really start to get into it. But we’ve jammed on some pretty songs for about two hours before we knew that we wouldn’t use them.”
Kings of Leon’s new album, Mechanical Bull, will arrive in stores on Tuesday in both standard and deluxe editions, the latter of which contains two bonus tracks: “Work on Me” and “Last Mile Home.”
