Metallica is headed back to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

After playing a special post-Super Bowl edition of the CBS program earlier this month, the metal legends will return for another Late Show performance next Wednesday, March 3.

For their last appearance, Metallica rocked a rendition of their classic “Enter Sandman” while surrounded by speaker cabinets from past tours dating back to 2003. There’s no word yet on what they’ll be playing this time around, but March 3 is notably the 35th anniversary of Metallica’s 1986 album Master of Puppets.

The Late Show airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.
