Metallica have shared a new preview from Metallica & San Francisco Symphony: S&M2, the upcoming live album and concert film centred on the band’s performances with the San Francisco Symphony in 2019.

This latest clip sees the band perform Moth Into Flame, taken from 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. Watch it above.

Metallica & San Francisco Symphony: S&M2 was recorded and filmed on 6 and 8 September 2019, as the opening event of the Chase Center in San Francisco. The show featured 20 songs taken from Metallica’s lengthy discography, with at least one song featured from each of the band’s 10 albums.

The release of the live album and concert film also serves as the ‘sequel’ to the fan favourite live album S&M from 1999, which marked the band’s first collaboration with the symphony.

S&M2 is scheduled for release 28 August – and is available for pre-order now. It comes in a variety of formats. The Super Deluxe Box edition – exclusive to Metallica.com – is limited to just 500 units, and includes four coloured vinyl records, an exclusive photo book, two CDs, a Blu-ray disc, five guitar picks, a poster, a download card and original sheet music from the show signed by the band.

Ahead of release day, the band also shared their performances of Nothing Else Matters and All Within My Hands from the gig.

Last month, Metallica, through their All Within My Hands Foundation (AWMH), announced a second donation for COVID-19 relief, directing $295,000 to five separate non-profit organisations. The list of grantees included Feeding America, Direct Relief, Live Nation’s Crew Nation, the Bartender Emergency Assistance Program and MusiCares.
