Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett recently sat down with Rich Gaenzler of the 103.3 The Edge WEDG-FM for an interview (you can listen to the audio here. Speaking of the band's next album, Hammett said it will "most likely" be out in 2016:
"Well, you know, we're moving forward. We're hoping that the album will be released next year. It's pretty much more along the same lines as 'Death Magnetic' — kind of like that direction. And, you know, we'll see. We're into it. I don't wanna say that we're a third into it, or two-thirds into it, or an eighth into it, 'cause anything could happen that'll just change that number. But, eventually, you will see a new Metallica album, and it will most likely be in 2016, and at the very worst, at the beginning of 2017."
