Kirk Hammett Says He Has “A Ton Of Material” For Metallica’s Next Album

During an interview with Australia’s Mixdown magazine, Kirk Hammett confirmed that he has “a ton of material” ready for Metallica’s next album. The guitarist also said the band are hoping put something out faster this time around.

Hammett said the following:

“When I was 13-14 years old, bands put out albums every year. Seriously, KISS put out an album every eight months. None of this eight years between albums.

None of us are very comfortable with the fact it’s been so long, because that is a long time. We’re hoping to avoid that this time around.

We’re in our third year since ‘Hardwired’. Maybe we can get a bit more focus and go into the studio a bit sooner. I have a ton of material. I’ve over-compensated, so I’m ready to go anytime.”

This news comes after Robert Trujillo previously said the group’s new album will “come a lot sooner than the previous two did.”
