During a Q&A session in Mexico City, frontman James Hetfield spoke about the long wait for the new album, saying, “It took a long time. People got mad. And I realized when we were playing the album for some of the journalists that it’s such a great feeling to give birth to new music and how it makes other people feel made me feel good. So I don’t know why we waited so long. Make sure we don’t wait so long again, okay?”
