Metallica will be releasing a live acoustic album, taken from their recent concert to benefit their “All Within My Hands Foundation.” The limited release of the two-LP Helping Hands … Live & Acoustic at the Masonic will arrive Feb. 9, with all of the band’s proceeds going to the organization. The band is taking pre-orders at its web store, with the album available on digital and streaming platforms on the same release date. A press release notes that the money received from sales of Helping Hands will be used to “fight hunger and to assist in creating sustainable communities through workforce education.”
The 12-song acoustic show from Nov. 3, coupled with an auction, raised $1.3 million to fund the group’s partnerships with Feeding America and the American Association of Community Colleges.
