The band just unveiled what they're calling Orion Music + More, a two-day event taking place June 23-24 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. All the details aren't available yet, but the metal pioneers will be topping the bill both nights, and one of those nights they'll be playing Metallica (better known as The Black Album) in its entirety for the first time ever in the U.S.
Who else will be playing with them? You might assume it would be nothing but head-bangers, but it's a pretty eclectic bill, everybody from Arctic Monkeys to Avenged Sevenfold to Modest Mouse to the Gaslight Anthem to Best Coast. So, indie-rock and metal are going to be hanging out for two nights in Jersey this summer. I wonder how those crowds will get along.
