Jason Newsted returned to the heavy metal scene earlier this year with his “Metal” EP and the response was unbelievably positive! We were hearing his type of sound, his lyrics and his passion for the first time on a record and it is absolutely incredible! This is raw, unrelenting, true heavy metal at it’s finest. Since the release of the EP, he now has a full band who have been destroying venues across the States on their warm up run for a massive tour schedule that’s taking them all the way through the Gigantour this summer! As you read in my review of the NYC show, he is still one of the most exciting musicians to watch on stage and the band sounds HUGE all together! Do NOT miss them when they come through your town!
Before the gig in New York City, I had the absolute honor and privilege to have a brief chat with Jason on the new band, getting back to touring, the response from the metal world, future plans and more! Check out my interview with the legend below!
