After releasing their inaugural yet pithy EP, Newsted — the band fronted by Jason Newsted of Voivod and Metallica fame — has finished an album.
The band reports it has completed tracking its first full-length album.
That album will be released later this year.
Newsted will begin mixing the effort later this week, with more details to be announced soon.
The band launches its first-ever U.S. tour on April 19 in Walnut Creek, California. The 14-date trek will conclude on May 23 in Asbury Park, New Jersey, and will lead into a number of European festival appearances.
The band recently added Staind guitarist Mike Mushok to its ranks.
The band’s EP Metal is in stores now.
