Metallica is helping to introduce a new combat sport to the world.

The metal legends are performing ahead of the debut of Triad Combat, a team-based fighting competition that combines the rules of boxing and MMA. Produced by Triller Fight Club, the event will take place November 27 in Arlington, Texas.

“Here’s something different for you and is definitely a first for us!” Metallica says of the show.

Tickets go on sale Friday, November 5, at 10 a.m. CT. You’ll also be able to watch live at home via pay-per-view.
