UNDERLORD was formed in early 2020 by Guitarist / Vocalist Jessie Farnsworth and Drummer Jesus Mendez Jr. both of the band NEWSTED which featured former METALLICA bassist Jason Newsted.
With NEWSTED Jessie and Jesus recorded an EP and full length album and toured internationally, performing at major European festivals such as Download, Sonisphere, Hellfest, Sweden Rock, etc. as well as arenas and amphitheaters throughout the US as part of Megadeth’s Gigantour.
Picking up where they left off with NEWSTED, and inspired by classic Metal bands like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Motorhead, Jessie and Jesus keep the Metal Assault rolling with UNDERLORD's debut EP “Groundbreaker” released on September 30th 2022!
Joined by bassist and longtime collaborator, Kevin Michael Thomason, the band is ready to hit the stage and bring their brand of heavy to the people!
Look out for UNDERLORD!
