Newsted, a new band formed by former Metallica bassist, Jason Newsted, has released a teaser for¬†”Soldierhead”, off Newsted’s four-song EP, Metal. ¬†The EP is set for release exclusively via iTunes on January 8th. ¬†The clip was filmed on December 15 in an abandoned factory in California. ¬†By purchasing all four songs, you will receive a copy of¬†Jason’s handwritten lyrics.
In a recent interview with¬†Sonic Excess,¬†Newsted¬†stated about the video shoot:
“It’s just a simple thing, and I just wanted to capture the band. There is no heavy concept, no literal thing about bullets chasing your head or any of those things. It’s old-school metal and most likely will be black and white. It was shot in an old factory. It was a gnarly, dusty, old factory and it had energy. That is what I will describe it as. I haven’t got to play to the camera like that for a long time, and I was really going for it. The soldier version is something everyone will have. An HD version will be available on¬†iTunes, but I want everyone to have it for free across the world. I want it to be the tip of the spear for everybody to see and hear what exactly it’s all about.”
