The American heavy metal band Metallica has just posted a statement for the fire in Australia through their social media accounts and stated that they are totally overwhelmed by the news of the wildfires sweeping. Also, they revealed that they are pledging $750,000 to the NSW Rural Fire Service and Country Fire Authority with their non-profit organization All Within My Hands.

Here’s the statement they shared:

“We are totally overwhelmed by the news of the wildfires sweeping through millions of acres across Australia, with major impact in New South Wales and Victoria. The resulting destruction and devastating effects on all residents, animals, the environment and the incredible land in Australia is truly heartbreaking.
