Metallica's new 3D movie will be hitting the biggest screens: Metallica Through the Never will be shown on every IMAX screen in North America for a week starting September 27th. The full release of the movie has been pushed back from August 9th to October 4th.

Metallica Bring 'The Full Arsenal' 3D Show to Vancouver

The metal greats filmed the movie last August over three shows in Vancouver. The concerts featured humongous pyrotechnics displays, a dozen floating coffins and "planned malfunctions," and the band sold tickets for the third and final show for just $5 to benefit the Vancouver Food Bank. Through the Never will combine live footage of the band with a narrative arc following a fictional member of their crew, played by the actor Dane DeHaan, who's sent on a mission during a concert. The movie seems sure to show a different side of Metallica than the tempestuous 2004 film Some Kind of Monster.

In addition to readying Metallica Through the Never for release, Metallica are preparing for their second Orion Music + More Festival, to be held this year on Detroit's Belle Isle on June 8th and 9th. Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bassnectar, the Dropkick Murphys, Gogol Bordello and the Dropkick Murphys are among the acts scheduled to perform.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
