Former Metallica Star Jason Newsted Completes New Album
The album will enter the mixing phase later this week, and release is targeted for some time later this year. The Newsted line-up includes drummer Jesus Mendez Jr, guitarist Jessie Farnsworth, and Staind guitarist Mike Mushok.
"It was obvious from the word go that Mike is one of us," Newsted says of Mushok'. "Professional, focused, happy and grateful to be able to make our beautiful noise together!"
Mushok said he loved Newsted's Metal EP, and jumped at the chance to be involved in the band while Staind were on break. "It was perfect timing," Mushok said. "All I could say was 'Hell yeah! I'm totally down for this!'"
