Former METALLICA, VOIVOD and FLOTSAM AND JETSAM bassist and current NEWSTED frontman Jason Newsted will take part in a signing and question-an-answer session at The Record Exchange (1105 W. Idaho St.) in Boise, Idaho at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 26. As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages.

Fans will get a chance to ask Newsted questions about his legendary career during a question-and-answer session moderated by 100.3 FM The X ‘s Big J. Newsted will then sign a CD or vinyl LP copy of NEWSTED‘s debut album, “Heavy Metal Music”, and one other item of your choice. Listen to The X earlier in the day to hear a live interview with Newsted and win a pair of front-of-line passes for the signing.

NEWSTED recently filmed a video for the song “King Of The Underdogs” in Oakland, California. Directing the clip once again was Leon Melas, who previously helmed NEWSTED‘s video for the track “Soldierhead”.

In a recent interview with Revolver magazine, Newsted stated about the lyrical inspiration for “King Of The Underdogs”: “‘King Of The Underdogs’ is kind of a personal thing almost. It’s, like, the highest rated of the underrated. I think people are rooting for me to win as they do with underdogs.”

“King Of The Underdogs” is featured on “Heavy Metal Music”, which sold nearly 8,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 40 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was made available on August 6 in North America via Chophouse Records/Collective Sounds and August 5 in Europe through Spinefarm Records.
