METALLICA MAKES THE 2015 GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS

Metallica has been included in the 2015 edition of Guinness World Records for the band's 2013 feat of playing concerts on all seven continents on Earth, making them the first and only musical act to do that. The group became the first to play on Antarctica on December 8th, 2013, when they performed an hour-long show for 120 scientists and competition winners at Carlini Station.

The band said in a statement, "Last year as we hit the road, like we do most years, visiting a lot of our favorite places along with some new ones, we didn't realize that we were on track to break a world record! Good thing someone else was paying attention as we managed to play on all seven continents in one year, becoming the first and only band to ever do so!"

The group added about the Antarctica show, "We were literally at the bottom of the earth for one of the most unique, special and unforgettable days in our 30+ years as a band and low and behold, our little adventure sealed the deal for the record! Who woulda thought."

Guinness World Records 2015 is available on September 10th for the suggested retail price of $28.95. The 2015 edition marks the sixtieth anniversary of the book, with the very first edition published in 1955.

Metallica is reportedly working in the studio on its 10th album.
