NEWSTED last week announced the addition of STAIND guitarist Mike Mushok to the group's ranks.

NEWSTED will release its full-length debut this summer, around the time of the group's appearance at this year's Download festival in June.

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

"I loved the old-school vibe of [NEWSTED's] '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.'"

NEWSTED is:

Jason Newsted - Bass, Lead Vocals
Jesus Mendez Jr. (THE NAPOLEON BLOWNAPARTS) - Drums
Jessie Farnsworth - Guitar, Backing Voice
Mike Mushok (STAIND) – Guitar

A photo of the current NEWSTED lineup can be seen below.

"Metal", the debut EP from NEWSTED, sold around 6,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 62 on The Billboard 200 chart.

"Metal" was released on January 8 exclusively via iTunes. The EP was made available as a physical CD on January 15.

"Metal" contains the following tracks:

* Soldierhead
* Godsnake
* King Of The Underdogs
* Skyscraper

Both the "Metal" EP and "Heavy Metal Music" album were really good, strong releases...have no idea what Jason's doing now, he pulled a Prince and disappeared.

Agreed. They definitely had that classic Flotsam & Jetsam sound that was lost when Newsted joined the ranks of Metallica. I'd like to see him get back out there and maybe put out a follow-up album... or perhaps a reunion with his old F&J bandmates. Now THAT'S a show I wouldn't mind seeing. They put out some outstanding material back in the day... It's too bad they never got the widespread exposure that they deserved.

Almost fell off my throne when I opened this thread and saw our former purple waggleing weeny. Then I realized that was from 2013.

Giving a listen to "Metal" on Rhapsody now. Not bad. Will try "Above All" on the way home.

Good man. Did you get a chance to spin "Heavy Metal Music" (the full-length LP)?
