Jason Newsted, former bassist of Metallica and current frontman and namesake of heavy metal band NEWSTED is waving the flag high to restore rock and metal's spot at the top of the music scene. With a successful EP and album, fans (especially of old school metal) are getting a full dosage of thrashy/punky/heavy riffs, complete with the unmistakably epic voice of Jason Newsted.
Touting the phrase "LISTEN TO METAL", Jason has always been highly vocal about getting his message heard, and truly, it is a message that music fans the world over should hear.
On his site, www.newstedheavymetal.com, Jason has announced that he is no longer a part of social media, or in his own words:
"not on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or any other social networking website as of September 15, 2014 & and has no affiliation with any such impostor sites using his name or likeness unlawfully."
