Robert Trujillo, the bassist of Metallica, has confirmed during an interview with Vinyl Guide the band has been working on their next album while they are self-quarantining. But don’t get too excited, as he would state there is no release date scheduled yet.

We communicate every week, which is really great, so we have our connection intact. And what we’ve started doing is basically just really concentrating on our home studios and being creative from our homes and navigating through ideas and building on new ideas.

Obviously, we’ve gotta get through this quarantine and all this stuff that’s happening with that. In the meantime, we’re creating, and I think that is really cool because sometimes it takes a while to get the band together and get four individuals who are living in different places in the same room. But it’s, like, “Hey, guess what? We don’t have to be in the same room right now.” We can make music from our homes and work together and build stuff, and then we’ll get in that room together, and we’ll bang the stuff out, but we’ll be 40 steps ahead.

There’s no definite plan as to a release date. I mean, we’re just sort of now cultivating the terrain and getting kind of excited about it, to be honest. Rob Trujillo

Metallica’s previous studio album was “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct” and their sixth consecutive release to debut at number one on the US Billboard 200. With the band as popular as ever, there is no reason to believe their next won’t make it seven in a row.
