Newsted reveals: "I am very happy in my life now! I have a new band that bears my own name. We're just finishing our first record. I'm feeling strong again playing bass and singing lead vocals and you all will be hearing it in one month's time! New year, new band, new life! Bless you all and I can't wait to share my music with everyone! I'm entrusting all of my friends to get the word out! Jason's back!"

He added: "I'm getting fired up about starting the recording of our new songs! Making final choices of weapons to capture the Music... got some killer loud amp set-ups planned, were gonna just go in & CRUSH IT! 1 week of genuine, bare bones, old school Metal! We will be announcing release date this week! Stay tuned."

"I'm getting fired up"
...fired up

I always loved Jason's backing vocals, hope he didn't loose power over the years.

Nice , I hope it's a fine album for his own sake . ( not looking forward to this though )
I kinda find naming a band after yourself lame ... imagine if Pain of Salvation was called Daniel Gildenlow . :p

I'm fucking down for this! Jason Newsted is a criminally underrated bass player, so hopefully this'll be fun to listen to.
