Metallica premieres new '72 Seasons' song, "Screaming Suicide"

Metallica has premiered a new song called "Screaming Suicide," a track off the band's upcoming album, 72 Seasons.

"'Screaming Suicide' addresses the taboo word of suicide," says frontman James Hetfield. "The intention is to communicate about the darkness we feel inside."

"It's ridiculous to think we should deny that we have these thoughts," the singer continues. "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."

You can listen to "Screaming Suicide" now via digital outlets, and watch its accompanying video streaming on YouTube.

72 Seasons, the follow-up to 2016's Hardwired...to Self-Destruct, will be released April 14. It also includes the previously released single "Lux Æterna," which has sat at #1 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Airplay chart for the last six weeks.

Metallica will support 72 Seasons with a giant world tour, which kicks off in April in Europe and then comes to the U.S. in August.
