"We'll be playing on @LateLateShowCBS for an entire week starting Monday, November 17th! #LateLateShow," the band posted Oct. 29.
The performances help mark the 10th-anniversary reissue of the Metallica documentary Some Kind of Monster, which will be available Nov. 24 as a digital release and on Blu-ray.
The band's residency comes as Ferguson is nearing the end of his late-night CBS run. He took over from Craig Kilborn as host of the show in January 2005, and his final episode is set to air on a yet-to-be-announced date in December. James Corden will grab the reins in March 2015.

Booking musical acts for week-long stints has become somewhat trendy for late-night shows, as the Foo Fighters had such a gig on the Late Show earlier this month.
