Metallica Launches Vinyl Club for Most Dedicated Fans

Always a band to commemorate the bond cultivated with its fan base over the years, Metallica has unveiled its first Vinyl Club.

As the name suggests, this is a special new project geared around celebrating music on wax — while also appealing to the most hardcore collectors of all things ‘Tallica.

Via this link, the current cost is $49.99 for a yearly subscription to the Vinyl Club — shipping not included.

Said Metallica in a statement:

The 2020 Vinyl Club Subscription will be available exclusively to members of Metallica’s Fifth Member fan club, and will feature rare cuts, demos and rough mixes, and live rarities—none of which have ever been released on vinyl before. Each subscription includes a personalized membership card and a series of four 7” records shipped throughout the year—some of which will include additional collectibles. Join the Club now; membership sign-ups for the inaugural year are open through Tuesday, March 31st at 11:59 PM EST.  Don’t wait!  New memberships won’t be open again until the 2021 subscription year.

We’re excited to kick off this new endeavor, and whether you get the subscription for yourself or a friend (makes a great gift!), we hope you have a blast collecting some good-old-school vinyl!

Seems a pretty sweet idea, especially for those who have ever-growing collections of Metallica memorabilia.

This unveiling comes right after it was announced that the band pulled out of two scheduled festival appearances later this year due to rehabilitation obligations faced by front man James Hetfield, who has been working on addiction and mental health concerns for the past year or so.

Continued best wishes to James!
