We’ve known for a minute now that Jason Newsted (Metallica, Voivod) was working with a new band, appropriately named Newsted.
Today, we’re learning from Jason that Newsted’s debut EP, Metal, will be released next month.
The four-song offering will be released exclusively on iTunes January 8.
Pre-orders for the EP begin on December 18.
The songs on Metal are called “Soldierhead,” “Godsnake,” “King Of The Underdogs,” and “Skyscraper.”
Oh and get this — by purchasing all four songs, you will receive a copy of Jason’s handwritten lyrics.
That’s somewhat awesome, I guess.
But also unnecessary.
