Meltdown on WRIF

Weekdays 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Metallica has partnered with Billabong to bring fans clothing and apparel that appeals to rockers who love surfing. The Billabong x Metallica 2019-2020 Collection kicked off on Tuesday, delivering board shorts, t-shirts, jackets, and a wetsuit, which celebrates the band’s classic self-titled 1991 release.

Over the coming months between now and March, there will be five product deliveries, each featuring a different album from Metallica.

Speaking of working together, lead guitarist Kirk Hammet said, “For myself, the exhilaration of heavy metal and the exhilaration of riding a wave are one and the same. The new collaboration reflects this incredible feeling.”
