What started as a joke shirt from his online store, Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed has released a one song demo from his Black Alpaca project. As a bonus track for his GaS Digital subscribers to “The Jasta Show Podcast” and made for purchase via www.martyrstore.net.com, the track features Jasta and Nick Bellmore (Jasta, Dee Snider). No word yet if this will lead to more music. Jasta is also working behind the scenes on another likely self-released project, an All-Star Thrash Metal album for release at a later date. The Jasta Show recently surpassed 500 episodes and can be streamed on all DSPs or GaS Digital for a low fee and a ton of bonus material and perks. Continue reading →
Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed is releasing his long in the works solo project album Jasta: The Lost Chapters Volume 2 this fall. Jasta announced today that he is offering subscribers to his podcast, The Jasta Show, via Gas Digital a special offer to get early access to the two new singles and the album before the public can buy or stream it. The two singles are ‘Spilled Blood Never Dies’ ft Kirk Windstein of Crowbar, and ‘Silence the Enemy Mind’ with Billybio’s Billy Graziadei. The album features guest appearances from Max Cavalera, George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher, Jesse Leach, Windstein, Howard Jones, Matthew K Heafy, Zoli Teglas, Billy Bio, Phil Rind, Tommy Victor, Joey Concepcion and Frankie Palmieri, as well as his backing band consisting of Charley and Nicky Bellmore (Dee Snider).

Jasta’s podcast airs two episodes weekly (Tuesday and Friday) in an interview format, often featuring hour-long, in-depth chats with legends. He is nearing 500 episodes, with the current edition #489, with Amigo The Devil, just aired.
