BEATALLICA, a satirical mashup act whose hilarious gimmick marries songwriting prowess often THE BEATLES to METALLICA’s rocky deep throat snarl, has been signed with Metal Assault Records. The band’s fourth full-length album, and the first in more than seven years, will be released later in 2021.
A statement from Metal Assault reads::
“Metal Assault first got introduced to Beatallica in 2010 when the band toured the West Coast and performed at the now defunct Key Club in West Hollywood, putting on the kind of performance only they can. Subsequently, we interviewed Beatallica and kept track of their progress over the years, as they took their show on the road all over the world, garnering a global fanbase, to go with heaps of praise from members of Metallica and the like, as well as from journalists everywhere.”

While we wait for the new album to be ready for release, Metal Assault Records has added BEATALLIC’s three existing full albums that can be purchased from the band’s new Bandcamp store.
BEATALLICA’s third full-length album, “Abbey Load”, was released in April 2013 through Oglio Records.
In 2005, the members of BEATALLICA received help from METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich in their dispute with Sony Music over BEATALLICA’s “illegal use” of the group’s compositions “without authorization or license”. Sony Music accused BEATALLICA of violating copyright laws, demanded that its webmaster pay “unspecified damages” and forced the band’s ISP to shut down its website. Thanks to Ulrich BEATALLICA it was soon back online and the legal debacle was over.
