Everyone’s favorite headbangers, Metallica, will act as Ambassador to Record Store Day 2016, celebrated worldwide this April 16th. The ninth annual event honors independent record stores all over the planet, and features shiny, exclusive vinyl from today’s top artists.

Last year RSD’s top selling item was Metallica’s own cassette-issued demos collection, No Life Til Leather. This year they will release Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, Metallica! – Live at Le Bataclan to benefit victims of the 2015 Paris attacks. Captured in Paris, France on June 11th, 2003, the CD features a live recording from the club. The band, Record Store Day and independent record stores will donate proceeds to Fondation de France’s Give For France charity.

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