Metallica‘s newfound movie-star status is keeping the band busy promoting its upcoming concert film, but not too busy to take the stage to do what they do best.

On July 19, the group will appear at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, sitting for a Q&A session alongside Nimrod Antal, the director of ‘Metallica: Through the Never.’ Also appearing will be Dane DeHaan, the actor who stars in the narrative portions of the movie, as well as one of the project’s producers, Charlotte Huggins.

The band also stated in its announcement of its appearance that “We can’t just talk about the film when we are in San Diego … we want to play too!” So, following the Q&A session, which is scheduled for 6 p.m. at Hall H in the city’s convention center, Metallica will be “heading out to a super-secret spot to have some fun and hit the stage.”

‘Metallica: Through the Never,’ due in IMAX theaters on Sept. 27, stars DeHaan as a roadie whose assignment to schlep some gear for the big Metallica show takes an unexpected turn (you can check out the trailer here). Blending concert footage with a fictional storyline, it offers what drummer Lars Ulrich referred to as “two separate worlds” for filmgoers.
