Kirk Hammett And Rob Trujillo Increase The New Metallica Album Expectations With Recent IG Posts

Metallica lead guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Rob Trujillo both shared posts on their official Instagram pages revealing pictures and videos together which led their fans to think the band is working on a studio album to come.

Metallica’s most recent studio album, ‘Hardwired… to Self-Destruct’ was released on November 18, 2016, which achieved instant success by debuting at number one on the US Billboard 200, selling 291,000 album-equivalent units in its first week, and topping the charts in 57 countries.

Due to the fact that it’s been nearly five years since their fans have been waiting for another album to come from Metallica, each and every band member is under the microscope of fans, especially with their social media posts just to see any reveal about an upcoming album.

Luckily, two of Metallica members recently shared posts on their official Instagram page as Robert Trujillo revealed a video recorded by Kirk Hammett in which he humorously showed his grapefruit throwing skills. While the two were in Hammett’s hometown, fans couldn’t help themselves but notice that Trujillo was actually with his bass guitar, and it may be an indicator that Metallica started recording an album.

Here is what Trujillo said:

While Metallica bassist only shared a fun video, Kirk Hammett also shared a post on his official Instagram page revealing a selfie with Trujillo. Even though it seemed like a regular selfie at first, cautious fans saw detail in the picture as there was another person in the frame who looked like the drummer Lars Ulrich. Despite band members didn’t answer any of those comments, it’s a high chance that Metallica actually started recording new material.

Here is what Hammett said:

“Just another day in the hood !!!”

Here is the most liked comment:

Is that Lars in the background?”
