The Forgotten Son

Newsted, the new project featuring former Metallica bassist and absolute diamond geezer Jason Newsted, will release their debut full-length album this summer, with a brand new member having joined the ranks this week.

Mike Mushok of Staind fame has officially joined the gang, who are busy putting the final touches on that aforementioned debut, which will land around the time that Newsted plays this year’s Download Festival.

“It was obvious from the word go that Mike is one of us,” says Jason. “Professional, focused, happy and grateful to be able to make our beautiful noise together!”

“I loved the old school vibe of the Metal EP, and when we got together to jam it really felt great,” adds Mushok. “Staind is taking a break for a while, so when Jason asked if I was interested in joining them to record an album and play on the upcoming tour, it was perfect timing. All I could say was, Hell yeah! I’m totally down for this.”

Debut Newsted EP Metal is out now via iTunes.
