Jason Newsted, previously the bassist for Metallica, has returned to heavy metal music. In a recent interview with Gator 98.7 FM’s Gator Garage, he announced that after three decades of working on a new album with Chophouse band, the album is finally completed and he’s once again focusing on his passion for heavy metal.
Jason said: “Actually, I spent six months of last year putting together The Chophouse Band Volume 1. The Chophouse Band has been together making music since 1992. So it was our first album after 30 years. I spent a lot of time on that. And then, once I got that under my belt, I’m kind of stepping back into the heavy now. So the last couple of weeks I’ve been auditioning guitar players for a heavy project. I’m back on bass and singing with a metal drummer, double bass, you know; getting’ loud again. So I’ve got a couple of irons in the fire. I’m putting two new projects together right now, but loud.”
Looking forward for that new band! what about you?
Keep it heavy brothers and sisters! \m/
