Ex-Metallica bassist Jason Newsted has been hard at work with his new band Newsted. He released the Metal EP at the beginning of this year and it has been announced that Newsted will be on this year’s Gigantour alongside Megadeth, Black Label Society, Device, Hellyeah, and Death Division, which kicks off July 5th (tour dates below). Now it has been announced that the group’s debut full-length album Heavy Metal Music will be released August 6th. Below is the album cover, track list, and a stream of the first single “Heroic Dose”.
