Metallica Unveil 3D Movie Title + Release Plans

Elektra Records Metallica fans have been patiently waiting, and today (Jan. 15) the band rewarded them with the news that their highly anticipated 3D concert movie will be titled ‘Metallica Through the Never.’ Plus, the group let it be known that the film will receive a theatrical release on Aug. 9. In a posting on their website, the band revealed that they’ve been working throughout the fall and into early 2013 with director Nimrod Antal and his team of editors to create the movie. They’ve also signed a deal with independent marketing and distribution company Picturehouse to bring it to theaters around the world. The band was impressed with the track record of Picturehouse founder Bob Berney, who had overseen the release of two of the biggest independent films ever — ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ and ‘The Passion of the Christ.’ The movie mogul recently re-entered the picture as the firm’s CEO and his first project in that role will be ‘Metallica Through the Never.’ Drummer Lars Ulrich stated the following on the band’s website: Metallica’s way of doing things is to jump into unexplored creative endeavors with no safety net whatsoever. Putting this movie together for the last couple of years has been a pretty wild ride, and we’ve definitely done our fair share of flying without a net! Bringing Bob and [Picturehouse President] Jeanne [Berney] and the new Picturehouse team in at this point provides us with a much-needed level of security for the distribution of the film. Their spirit of independence and desire to work outside the box is something we can relate to in every way and this makes them both a welcome addition and a natural fit in the Metallica family. Ulrich recently compared the film to Led Zeppelin’s ‘The Song Remains the Same,’ and also gave further details about the movie’s concept.

The disc itself consists of 11 new tunes, led by ‘ We Are .’ One of the band’s vocalists, Johnny 3 Tears, recently stated of the track and its background, “The song is about collective resistance. It’s the silent majority, but we’re using Los Angeles as the backdrop. Every time we work with Danny [Lohner], he takes our music to the next level. He’s willing to go as far outside the box as we are. As a whole, it’s a good introduction to ‘Notes From The Underground’ because it encompasses the band idealistically. Think of it as an ode to our misled youth.” The set also features the lead off track, ‘Dead Bite,’ which the band already previewed, as well as such standouts as ‘Another Way Out’ and ‘Believe.’ The full track listing is provided below.

Three Days Grace Offer Advance Stream of New Album ‘Transit of Venus’

Facebook: Three Days Grace ‘Transit of Venus,’ the fourth studio album from  Three Days Grace , is due out on Oct. 2, but fans can hear the entire album online now thanks to an advance stream on IGN.com. The debut single ‘Chalk Outline’ from the forthcoming disc, has been heating up radio and music charts alike. ‘Transit of Venus’ also includes a rendition of Michael Jackson’s ‘Give in To Me.’ In IGN.com ’s exclusive interview with drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, he talks about what Three Days Grace were going for with this new album. “This one is definitely a little tighter and more articulated. We wanted to take a different approach with this record, and we wanted to push the boundaries as far as our sound and what we’re singing about — dig a little bit deeper than a lot of the other rock bands that we’re hearing out there these days” says Sanderson. He goes on to say, “We thought outside the box a little bit and tried not to be as formulaic, experimenting with multiple layers … We wanted to have songs that felt more progressive … without alienating our original sound. We still sound like Three Days Grace, and we wanted to keep it real.” Three Days Grace will keep it real with a North American tour in support of ‘Transit of Venus,’ which starts in October.
