Jason Newsted (Ex-Metallica) Has Been “Auditioning Guitar Players For A Heavy Project”

It looks like Jason Newsted is putting together a new band. The former Metallica bassist said the following about that while discussing his Chophouse Band with Gator 98.7 FM:

“Actually, I spent six months of last year putting together THE CHOPHOUSE BAND ‘Volume 1′. THE CHOPHOUSE BAND has been together [and] 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.”
