The New Wave Of Hair Metal Weekend News Report June 16, 2018
To TNWOHM fan's around the world,
Greetings, and welcome back to another edition of the Weekend News Report! I'm about 8 hours late on posting this, but I got a little busy. Regardless, here we go, let's let it rip:
🇸🇪ToxicRose🇸🇪 announced their new bassist! Please give a warm welcome to Johannes Sandberg. ToxicRose released the first single "The Fallen Ones" from the up coming album on Friday.
🇫🇮Shiraz Lane🇫🇮 made this announcement:
"For the first time, Shiraz Lane's music can be found on a video game soundtrack!
Brand new rally/demolition derby game Wreckfest, by the creators of legendary FlatOut series now includes two Shiraz Lane tracks, "Harder To Breathe" and "Tidal Wave". This is what our proud gamer, Hannes Kett has to say about it:
"FlatOut, the great ancestor of Wreckfest was one of the games I rocked the most on my first gaming console. Oh, those sweet childhood memories last forever.
We are beyond excited to be a part of this upcoming adventure that is Wreckfest. I can't even imagine the countless hours all of us spent headbanging to the tunes of the FlatOut series. I hope our tunes will give every gamer out there a boost of adrenaline to keep the racing juice flowing!
I was going to buy the game anyways, but hey, now I've got another reason as well!
From all of us in the Shiraz Lane Family, thank you very much for this honor.
Put your driving goggles on, it's time to get Wrecked!"
