Metallica’s Hardwired…to Self-Destruct has been embraced by fans and critics, and now, the metal men are putting it towards a good cause. The Metallica gang has announced plans to reissue Self-Destruct on pink vinyl for Ten Bands One Cause, an initiative to support Gilda's Club NYC.

Gilda’s Club NYC, which was named after the late comedian and Saturday Night Live cast member Gilda Radner, is a charity organization that gives assistance to those diagnosed with cancer and their caregivers.

In addition to Metallica, other bands and musicians set to reissue albums on pink wax for Ten Bands One Cause include Mastodon, Portugal. The Man, Lord Huron, Dustin Kensrue, Gary Clark Jr, Lucinda Williams, Mastodon, Four Year Strong, Blue October and GWAR.
