Ari Lehman was the first actor to play Jason Voorhees on screen. His leap from the lake at the end of Friday the 13th (1980) (read our 40th Anniversary retrospective here) was a legendary jump scare. Lehman is the frontman for the aptly named, Chicago based FIRST JASON. The metal act has been melting faces since 2004 and they’re back with a new album: “Lord of the Lake.”
Check out their new single below, then read on for more info and tour dates!
