Fans have been waiting patiently, the group’s most recent LP Death Magnetic was released eight years ago.

There has been no official word from the band regarding the reported date, but perhaps their Twitter account offers a clue to the new album’s direction.

“The creative bar has been raised by @Lin_Manuel,” Lars tweeted earlier this week, posting a photo of the two together. “Grateful to finally experience @HamiltonMusical. Awestruck.”
