On last night’s episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Metallica took a break from their WorldWired tour to play “Now That We’re Dead” off their latest album, Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. As to be expected, their performance was insane.

It’s been just about a week since the band’s Baltimore show—the kickoff to their first full-blown US tour in almost a decade. To show their appreciation, Metallica shared the below video.

The North American leg of the WorldWired tour continues through the summer and wraps in Edmonton mid-August.
