Metallica have released ‘Screaming Suicide’, the second single from their forthcoming album 72 Seasons. The track arrives with a music video directed by Tim Saccenti, who also helmed the visual for lead cut ‘Lux Æterna’. Check it out below.
“‘Screaming Suicide’ addresses the taboo word of suicide,” James Hetfield explained in a stateent. “The intention is to communicate about the darkness we feel inside. It’s ridiculous to think we should deny that we have these thoughts. At one point or another I believe most people have thought about it. To face it is to speak the unspoken. If it’s a human experience, we should be able to talk about it. You are not alone.”
72 Seasons is set for release on April 14 via Metallica’s own Blackened Recordings.
