In the run-up to its release on November 18th, Metallica are releasing a new video for each track from Hardwired… To Self-Destruct every two hours via various media websites worldwide. The first video, “Dream No More” (directed by Tom Kirk) will appear through Gshow Global, a Brazilian outlet.

The videos – shot around the globe – will give fans the opportunity to hear the long awaited Metallica album two days ahead of its official November 18th release via Blackened Recordings.
Directors for the videos include: Jonas Åkerlund, who originally worked with the band on “Turn The Page” and “Whiskey In The Jar,” album package photographers Herring and Herring, Colin Hakes (“Hardwired”), Clark Eddy (“Atlas Rise,” and countless “Making of . . .” clips), Tom Kirk (“Moth Into Flame”), Claire Marie Vogel, Jessica Cope, Rob Valley, Phil Mucci, and Metallica’s very own videographer Brett Murray. The forthcoming clips follow the previously released videos for “Hardwired”, “Moth Into Flame”, and “Atlas, Rise”.
