Metallica launch vinyl club

Metallica have announced the launch of their own Vinyl Club subscription service.

“It’s another first for us... our very own Vinyl Club!,” says the band. “As huge music fans ourselves, it’s been super exciting to see the resurgence of vinyl and how much enjoyment we all get collecting, exploring and connecting with other fans mining for lost treasures. Those of us who love the look, feel and sonic warmth of vinyl are sorta in our little exclusive club, so with that in mind, we thought it would be fun to start adding to our collections on a regular basis.

“The 2020 Vinyl Club Subscription will be available exclusively to Fifth Members and will bring you rare cuts, demos & rough mixes, and live rarities; who knows what we’ll dig up!”

“Obviously they’ll all be cuts that have never been released on vinyl before,” continues Metallica. “Each subscription includes a personalized membership card, four 7” vinyl records, and select releases throughout the year will include additional collectibles; this could be anything from exclusive stickers to picks or even posters!

“We’re excited to kick off this new endeavor, and whether you get the subscription for yourself or a friend (makes a great gift!), we hope you have a blast collecting some good-old-school vinyl!”

Fans can join the Vinyl Club now; membership sign-ups for the inaugural year are open through Tuesday, March 31 at 11:59 PM EDT. New memberships won’t be open again until the 2021 subscription year.

Metallica are scheduled to begin their 2020 live dates with a six-show series in South America in April.
