Metallica will the studio this September to begin the follow up to 2008’s Death Magnetic album. It will be recorded by Rick Rubin, who manned the board for Magnetic. “Every time [singer] James Hetfield picks up a guitar, there are some brilliant riffs that come out of it, and I try to make sure that they are all recorded and try to do my best to keep up with them and try to put some drums behind them,” drummer Lars Ulrich said. “So there are, obviously, tons of ideas sitting around waiting to be had at in terms of turning ideas of James’ into songs.” New ‘Tallica is due in 2013.

Misery Index will grind your mind on tour this summer. The Baltimore (or is that “Balticore?”) grooveniks will hit the road on a string of dates planned from Aug. 14 through Aug. 19. It’s a short run, but the band will be making the most of it, that’s for sure. They are touring out of necessity, due to the cancelation of the Shockwave tour leaving them with both the hankering to play and some cool merch to peddle. Know what that means, metal fans? You win! The band issued the following statement about the trek: “Due to the recent cancellation of the Shockwave Tour, we were left high and dry with massive amounts of incredibly cool merch, wasted ambition and a rented van. Since this is obviously NOT a game, we are ready to go out and rage anyway, have a good time and spread our metal demon seeds in these cities! Come out and support us in anyway possible, and you shall be the next contestant chosen to win two tickets to death metal paradise.”

In other Misery Index news, the band is working on its next album and Season of Mist debut. The guys will hit the studio in early 2013.
