Jason Newsted

Oh yeah, folks!

If you don’t care about Jason Newsted, you won’t care that he’s got a new band and is working on new music with that new band.

The former Metallica and Voivod bassist took to his Facebook page to announce the news.

“I want y’all to know that I am ultra-proud of my time in [Metallica]… I am thankful for the wonderful experiences of our 15 years together and I will always be open to jammin’ with the boys… I am very happy in my life now,” says Newsted.

“I have a new band that bears my own name, we’re just finishing our first record, I’m feeling strong again playing bass and singing lead vocals and you all will be hearing it in one month’s time!!!! New year, new band, new life!! Bless you all and I can’t wait to share my music with everyone!! I’m entrusting all of my friends to help me get the word out!!! Jason’s back!”

Jason is back. I guess.

Are any of you folks excited for his new band’s material?
