Metallica have announced that their Marching Band Competition is returning for a second year.

Last year’s response to Metallica’s first-ever marching band competition “completely blew us away,” with over 500 colleges and high schools in the U.S. submitting their truly unique interpretations of Metallica songs, said the band.

Year two offers three times as many chances to win and has officially kicked off, with sign-ups open now at metallicamarchingband.com through September 23.

Competition winners will receive instruments and gear for their schools’ music programs, sponsored by Sweetwater, and generous donations from TAMA, KHS America, and others to be announced.

Each of the five original categories – College (Division 1), College (Divisions 2 & 3), High School (Large), High School (Medium), and High School (Small) – has now been expanded to include awards for first, second, and third place, with winners in each category ultimately selected by the members of Metallica. The Fan Favorite award will return with voting opening on December 1.

Participating school bands can choose free sheet music from a set of 13 songs.

Bands will have access to a library of marching band charts for Metallica songs, provided by Hal Leonard via sheetmusicdirect.com.
