Metallica Pushing Back Next Album Release

Lars Ulrich says Metallica's long-awaited tenth album won't be released for at least another year.

He'd already suggested the follow-up to 2008's Death Magnetic wouldn't be released until 2015, although he'd also said work would begin in the coming weeks.

"We've got some good ideas," he said. "Our biggest problem is not the ideas, our biggest problem is time. Metallica is busier than ever – it just seems like there's more and more going on and the days get shorter and shorter. But hopefully we will be done writing this year. Next year we should record and hopefully have a new record out maybe next year."
