Newsted recently finished recordings for their debut full-length album. Check out the video update below:

As previously reported, STAIND guitarist Mike Mushok has joined Newsted. Following the release of Newsted’s explosive EP, Metal – which debuted #1 on the iTunes metal chart, Mushok, guitarist Jessie Farnsworth and drummer Jesus Mendez Jr. are currently pounding away at Jason’s Chophouse Studios in Northern California, putting the final touches on a full-length album to be released early this summer.

“It was obvious from the word go that Mike is one of us,” says Jason. “Professional, focused, happy and grateful to be able to make our beautiful noise together!”
“I loved the old school vibe of the Metal EP, and when we got together to jam it really felt great,” adds Mushok. “Staind is taking a break for a while, so when Jason asked if I was interested in joining them to record an album and play on the upcoming tour, it was perfect timing. All I could say was, Hell yeah! I’m totally down for this.”
