Metallica’s ‘Atlas, Rise!’ Makes Live Debut in Colombia
Metallica are on a roll! The promotion for the band's upcoming Hardwired ... To Self-Destruct is yielding cool moments almost daily, with the latest coming during the band's recent performance in Bogota, Colombia where they gave the song "Atlas, Rise!" its live debut.
The band just released the track earlier this week as a Halloween treat for fans in the lead-up to the new album and now they've worked it into their live set as well. As seen in the pro shot footage released by the band, the group is already honed in on the driving rocker, with Kirk Hammett getting a solid guitar solo within the performance. The group performed the song for the first time at the Hipodromo De Los Andres in Bogota, Colombia on Tuesday night (Nov. 1).
"Atlas, Rise!" joins "Hardwired" and "Moth Into Flame" as the first songs to be revealed from the band's upcoming Hardwired ... To Self-Destruct album, which is due Nov. 18. You can currently pre-order the disc via the band's website.
Metallica have a couple of more shows in South America before heading to Paris on Nov. 15 for a show. After that, the group has some time away from the road to finish out the year, but will kick off their 2017 in South Korea in mid-January. All of their dates can be found here.
