'The ABCs of Metallica' looks back at the history of the band

Metallica are set to release an illustrated book for children.

Titled The ABCs of Metallica, the book has been co-authored by Howie Abrams and features illustrations by Michael "Kaves" McLeer.

"We have a new book coming out and this time it rhymes," the band said in a statement on their website. "We're having a bit of fun as The ABCs of Metallica hits the shelves and online book stores on November 26, 2019, all for a great cause with a portion of the proceeds benefiting All Within My Hands as we continue to support workforce education and the fight against hunger."

Including rhymes and illustrations, The ABCs of Metallica looks back at the history of the band from, duh, A to Z! Each letter of the alphabet highlights a moment along our journey from Garage Days to Master of Puppets to fun facts about us."

The book is out in shops and digitally on November 26. Read our recent Beyond The Hits... feature on Metallica here.
