METALLICA frontman Hetfield was talked by Radio Futuro before Metallica’s April 1 live performance at Lollapalooza Chile in Santiago. Now you can watch the chat under.
Talking about METALLICA’s willingness to consistently take chances with its music and other projects, Hetfield mentioned: “At the end of the day, we are artists and we love creating art that we like, and the songs and the artwork and the logos and t-shirts — everything. We are very blessed to be able to be in a position of doing whatever we want as an artist. But I think that honesty is very important for the integrity of the music, integrity of all of METALLICA. I think the fans really enjoy the fact that we write music that we want to hear. And it’s simple — we keep it simple that way. And the fans will come, if you’re honest about your art.”Download Our App
Hetfield also spoke about the success of the band’s newest album, 2016’s “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”. He mentioned: “[I’m] very surprised — very surprised that, after 36 years, an album like this is important to people. It’s a surprise still; it blows my mind that after this long, people are enjoying our music. It’s as simple as that. We will continue to make music, play shows and do what we need to do as people. METALLICA helps us stay alive, and the fact that we’re gonna be on tour for another two and a half years, it’s exciting.”
