Before Metallica rocks Antarctica, bassist Robert Trujillo will head to sunnier climes.
According to Blabbermouth, Trujillo will premiere his new animated short, “’Tallica Parking Lot,” in Los Angeles at the 2013 Comikaze Expo.
Like the band’s recent concert film, Metallica: Through the Never, “’Tallica” has both a scripted narrative and concert footage.
Per HitFix, the soundtrack has “big, energetic beats as the animations panned through 2D and 3D views of the fans that pre-game Metallica shows.”
The expo is set to take place on November 2 at 10am at the Los Angeles Convention Center, where he will be joined by Brendan Small (“Metalocalypse,” Dethklok), as well as “King of the Hill” and “Beavis and Butt-head" creator Mike Judge.
The trio will take part in a panel discussion and Q&A session after the viewing. While a DVD and Blu-ray release date has not yet been announced, both “’Tallica” and three different versions of Through the Never will soon be bundled together for a home release.
Aside from the version released in theaters, one cut is said to be just the Dane DeHaan narrative storyline with a “Goblin-esque” soundtrack, while the other is just the concert footage with several live bonus tracks.
On December 8, Metallica is set to perform at the Carlini Argentine Base in Antarctica.
