Metallica performed their 1991 classic, “Enter Sandman”, on children’s instruments with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on The Tonight Show on Wednesday.
The track was the lead single of the group’s self-titled record, commonly known as the “Black” album, the band’s first to top the US charts on its way to sales of 16 million in the States and more than 30 million worldwide.
The band’s Tonight Show appearance was to promote the November 18 release of their tenth album, “Hardwired…To Self Destruct.”
The follow-up to 2008’s “Death Magnetic” was recorded over the past year at Metallica’s headquarters in California with producer Greg Fidelman, while guitarist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich oversaw the sessions.
Metallica will launch the project with an intimate concert at London, UK’s House Of Vans.
“The release day eight years in the making!!,” says the band. “And what better way to celebrate than a live show for Fifth Members and winners at the very intimate and exclusive London House of Vans!”
The group are asking all attendees to make a £20 donation at the door to benefit The Railway Children, who assist kids who live alone and at risk on the streets in the UK, India and East Africa.
