Some essential reading for the young ones
Metallica will release an official children's book before the end of the year, "The ABCs of Metallica." The book will follow the history of the heavy metal legends alphabetically, and introduce the band to a new generation of fans.
Metallica announced the book on social media, writing: “We have a new book coming out and this time it rhymes! We’re having a bit of fun as The ABCs of Metallica hits the shelves and online book stores on November 26, 2019, all for a great cause with a portion of the proceeds benefiting All Within My Hands as we continue to support workforce education and the fight against hunger.
“Including rhymes and illustrations, The ABCs of Metallica looks back at the history of the band from, duh, A to Z! Each letter of the alphabet highlights a moment along our journey from Garage Days to Master of Puppets to fun facts about us.”
The book will be released just before Metallica arrive in New Zealand to play two shows at Auckland's Mt Smart stadium.
