Metallica covered some previously unexplored territory with the release of their 3D concert film, Metallica: Through the Never, and according to Lars Ulrich, the band isn’t done exploring!
In a recent interview with a California radio station (via Blabbermouth) the drummer dropped some heavy hints about something ‘out of this world’ coming up for the metal-rockers this winter.
“There’s another frontier heading in Metallica’s direction in December. Which, if anybody even knew that I just said what I just said, they would hunt me down and silence me. But there is another frontier coming in December, which we’re very excited about,” Ulrich explained cryptically.
Whether the rocker meant ‘another frontier’ literally or figuratively is unclear, but if any band was going to become the first to play a rock concert on the moon, we could image Metallica being among the candidates.
Back on earth, Metallica: Through the Never had the best weekend opener in history for a concert film in IMAX theaters. According to The Wrap, the movie, which combines both live concert footage and a fictional storyline starring Dane DeHaan, raked in a whopping $1.67 million on 305 screens alone.
Through the Never is set to premiere on another 650 screens across the United States next weekend.
