NEWSTED - Heavy Metal MusicFrom his official website Jason has announced an August 6th release date for ’s forthcoming album, HEAVY METAL MUSIC.

Matching and exceeding the teaser EP Metal (which debuted at #1 on the iTunes metal chart), ’s debut full-length assault, HEAVY METAL MUSIC, is likewise short on pretense and long on crushing riffs. From the throwback Sabbathian strut of “Ampossible,” the breakneck gallop of “Long Time Dead,” or the full speed ahead charge of breakout single “Above All,” the 11-song album is sure to cement the band’s place as one of metal’s strongest outfits. Staind guitarist Mike Mushok joins an already impressive fold with Jason on bass and lead vocals, guitarist Jessie Farnsworth and drummer Jesus Mendez Jr.

Listen to an exclusive stream of the brand new track “Heroic Dose” below

Currently in Europe playing festivals around the world, including Impact in Poland on June 5th and the Download Festival in England on June 16th,

Newsted will return to the US in early July for Megadeth’s formidable Gigantour, which also features Black Label Society, Device, Hellyeah and Death Division.

“There is a chance that Mustaine and I will bust out some old Metallica that he was a part of. It has been talked about, “ Jason said. “I’m willing to throw down Phantom Lord – actually, whatever he calls out, I’m gonna throw down.”
