Jason Newsted knows metal. He’s lived and breathed it his whole life. He was Metallica’s bass player from 1986 until 2001 (so, basically back when they were good) and played on albums like …And Justice for All, their self-titled album (the best-selling Metallica release to date), Load and a few others. Since his departure from Metallica, Newsted has remained active in the metal scene playing with his project Echobrain, as well as with Ozzy Osbourne and Voivod just to name a few. Late last year he announced the formation of his own band, simply called Newsted, with drummer Jesus Mendez, Jr. and guitarist Jessie Farnsworth. Staind’s guitarist Mike Mushok joined just last month, rounding out the lineup and thickening up their sound. Newsted, who is up for a Golden Gods Award this year for Best Bassist alongside legends Geddy Lee (Rush), Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead) and others, is hitting the road with his new group for just 12 shows in the United States before they head over to Europe for festival appearances. Don’t miss your chance to see a metal legend live, in the flesh, at Ace of Spades on April 27, 2013. Hit up http://newstedheavymetal.com/ or http://aceofspadessac.com/ for more information.
