Got anything cool related to Metallica’s “…And Justice For All” and “Metallica” (aka “The Black Album”) albums? Then Metallica wants it.
The group is spreading the word on social media that it’s “time to start trudging forward with” deluxe reissues of those two albums, and that “We’re looking for anything and everything you might have from August 1987 through July 1993…photos (taken by you!), flyers, ticket stubs, backstage passes and whatever other mementos you may have from that time.”
The group is also looking for recordings of any interviews conducted with the four band members during that time.
Fans can submit possible materials via firstname.lastname@example.org. Metallica will release its next reissue, of 1986’s “Master Of Puppets,” on November 10, featuring demos, alternate versions, rough mixes, live tracks and more in a variety of different packages.
