Keeping the "world" in "WorldWired," Metallica have announced the latest leg of their international touring. The band will be hitting South America for six dates next spring and they'll be bringing along red hot upstarts Greta Van Fleet.

"As the WorldWired tour hits the last leg in Europe, there are still so many places left to visit; South America, you’re up first in 2020! The last time we had the pleasure was in 2017 as part of the Lollapalooza festival and now it’s time to come back with the full-on stadium experience (as seen in N. America and Europe) for six headlining shows including two Brazilian cities we have never played in – Belo Horizonte and Curitiba," state Metallica.

The band continues to promote their 2016 album Hardwired ... to Self Destruct. It's been a big year for the band, which will continue in September with a pair of sold out shows in which the group celebrates the 20th anniversary of their S&M symphonic album live in San Francisco. The S&M2 shows will be filmed and turned around for a one-night only theatrical screening on Oct. 9. For more details, click here.

As for Greta Van Fleet, it's just the latest sign of ascension in the rock industry. The nod from the veteran metalliers comes while they continue to promote their Anthem of the Peaceful Army album. They'll continue to tour well into late fall in the U.S., and dates can be found here.

Just last month, the band revealed that they had started work on their second album, adding that they hope to have it out by the end of the year. No title or official release date has been revealed.
