Newsted Previews New Album with Free Download

Newsted: Heavy Metal MusicAfter a hugely successful EP, Newsted is previewing their first full-length album Heavy Metal Music with a free download of the first single, “Heroic Dose.”

The band, fronted by bassist Jason Newsted, formed late last year and has quickly gained a strong following.

“I’m doing this because I want to do this,” Newsted told us in an interview. “I only do what I want to do. I’ve played by my own rules for a long, long time and I don’t think that’s any mystery to anyone that’s in the metal world. I just want to share this with anybody that wants it.”

The track can be downloaded here, and via this Youtube video:

Newsted is currently on tour in Europe and will be spending July and August on the road with the Gigantour.

Heavy Metal Music is due out August 6th.
