Metallica is no stranger to Record Store Day (this year Saturday, April 16), a special day in support of independent record stores and record store culture worldwide, now in its ninth year.

“Independent record stores are part of Metallica’s DNA,” said drummer Lars Ulrich. “They have been pivotal in shaping each one of us into the music fanatics we’ve all become. We could not be any prouder to be Record Store Day Ambassadors for 2016 and are looking forward to screaming from every rooftop the next few months about everything independent record store and beyond.”

This year the band’s official release will be “Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, Metallica! – Live at Le Bataclan. Paris, France – June 11th, 2003”, a CD featuring a live recording from the club, with the band, Record Store Day and independent record stores donating proceeds to benefit Fondation de France’s Give For France charity.

The live recording setlist includes “The Four Horsemen”, “Leper Messiah”, “No Remorse”, “Fade To Black”, “Frantic”, “Ride The Lightning”, “Blackened” and encores “Seek & Destroy” and “Damage, Inc.”
