NEWSTED Posts Samples Of “Heavy Metal Music” AlbumSunday, 21st July 2013
NEWSTED, the new act fronted by former METALLICA, VOIVOD, and FLOTSAM AND JESTSAM bass player Jason Newsted has posted audio samples of all 11 songs from their forthcoming Heavy Metal Music album. The songs can be streamed in the YouTube video below.
Heavy Metal Music will be released on August 6 in North America via Chophouse Records/Collective Sounds and August 5 in Europe through Spinefarm Records. Jason told Billboard.com the 11-song album will be very similar to the band’s debut EP, Metal, which 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. “The EP was always intended to be the primer, a sampler of what was to come on the LP,” he said. “It’s all metal all the time. It’s not all fast, but it is all heavy.”
Heavy Metal Music track listing:
1. Heroic Dose
3. …As The Crow Flies
5. Long Time Dead
6. Above All
7. King Of The Underdogs
9. Twisted Tail Of The Comet
NEWSTED recently dropped off the 2013 edition of Gigantour due to Jason’s bout with walking pneumonia.
