Metallica fans will be getting an early Christmas present from the band as they have set a December 10, 2012 release date for their new "Quebec Magnetic" DVD and Blu-ray.
The band also announced that they will be releasing the effort under their own label. Here is what they had to say: "About a month ago we mentioned that we have a live DVD in the works to complete the Death Magnetic experience and leaned on you to help us decide which songs would be on the main disc. As promised, we're back now with more details on that DVD,Quebec Magnetic (!?!) which will find its way to your local retailer, online store, Metallica.com and favorite digital provider on December 10, 2012.
"This release is a first for us... yes boys and girls, the DVD and Blu-ray will be come out on our very own label in North America! There are still some i's being dotted and t's crossed, so we can't give you a name or fancy logo just yet, but we're pretty excited that for the first time we get to hold all the reins on a release from start to finish. Since we now get to call all the shots, the double DVD and single disc Blu-ray will be available for a price we thought was very Metallica fan friendly - suggested retail will be $15.98 for either format. more on this story
