Mike Mushok From Staind Joins Newsted, Rocks The F**k Out!

Former Metallica Bassist Jason Newsted has a new band(the cleverly titled Newsted) and a new album coming out this Summer.  They have also expanded their ranks by adding Staind Guitarist Mike Mushok, who has always made sure Staind kept their heavy edge.  

In a recent interview Mushok said, “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.”

So while Aaron Lewis sows his Country Oats with his Town Line album, Mushok keeps the heaviness alive.  Looking forward to it!  Check out some of the jams in the video below.
