Newsted’s forthcoming record, Heavy Metal Music will be released on August 6th.
Matching and exceeding the teaser EP Metal (which debuted at #1 on the iTunes metal chart), Newsted’s debut full-length record, Heavy Metal Music, is likewise short on pretense and long on crushing riffs. Staind guitarist Mike Mushok joins an already impressive fold with Jason on bass and lead vocals, guitarist Jessie Farnsworth and drummer Jesus Mendez Jr.
